Visions 2031: The State of the Archive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A variety of lightning talk perspectives from those working with media collections in different ways and in different types of organizations.  What do archives look like in 2031? What does a
day in the life of a media archivist look like? What does media preservation mean?  What new technologies are in play? Any (or all) of these questions are open for discussion. This is the first in a continuing series of talks by thought leaders looking at the future of our profession. A short discussion of what has been presented will close the session.
