First Annual SAA AV Archives Night Program
At the 2014 annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists in Washington, DC, AVPreserve hosted our First 1st Annual AV Archives Night party at the legendary Black Cat music venue. Soliciting submissions of audio and moving image content from archives in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, we put together a program celebrating the audiovisual heritage of the region as well as the important preservation work that archives are doing. Featuring content as varied as veterans oral histories, university radio station ID tags from John Lennon, government experiments with LSD, and more, the night was a great success. We look forward to continuing the tradition at future SAA conferences to highlight archival collections in regions across the country.
