AVPreserve will be covering a large portion of the continent this weekend, attending both the Midwest Archives Conference Annual Meeting in Kansas City, MO and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference Spring Meeting in Rochester, NY. Our newest team member, Senior Consultant Bertram Lyons, will be at MAC and is lucky to travel to one of our favorite American cities. AVPreserve President Chris Lacinak and Senior Consultant Josh Ranger will both be presenting on panels at MARAC. It will be our 5th MARAC conference and we’re excited to finally be participating on panels.
Chris will be speaking on Friday afternoon on the panel Enabling Action: Resources for Planning and Implementing Audiovisual and Digital Preservation, along with Yvonne Ng from WITNESS and Erin Engle from The Library of Congress, where he will be discussing our new Cost of Inaction preservation planning tool. Josh will be participating in a roundtable with Megan McShea from the Smithsonian Archives of American Art and Katrina Dixon from the New York Public Library Rodgers & Hammerstein Recorded Sound Collection on the topic of Defining Your Product: Approaches to and Outcomes of Processing Audiovisual Collections. We look forward to seeing everyone and meeting lots of new colleagues in the Northeast and the Midwest!
