Keeping Archives Relevant in a Dizzying Digital World
A digital preservation community meeting hosted by Preservica

This year the Preservica community meeting is free and open to everyone.
The quick-moving global events of 2020 have highlighted the need for archivists to work effectively and efficiently in the digital realm. This includes capturing history as it happens, processing remotely, and expanding ways for communities to share and access information online. The role of the archivist and digital archiving capabilities have never been more important to our institutions and to society.
Please join Preservica customers and staff as we explore together the evolving impact of digital archives, celebrate user projects and stories, and discuss innovations in archival practice.

Speakers and panelists:
  • Lindsay Hiltunen, University Archivist – Michigan Tech University Archives
  • Ashton Wingate, Digital Archivist - NAACP Legal Defense Fund 
  • Gregory S Hunter, Professor – Long Island University
  • Marta Crilly, Archivist – Boston City Archives
  • And digital preservation experts from Preservica

This session is hosted separately by Preservica.
