Event Details: 

The Library of Congress serves as both a reference source for our legislators, and the official keeper of our nation’s history.  This history comes in many forms including printed, photographic, audio and video recordings, and digital files.   And while each of these forms require different techniques for their archiving, it is the electronic formats which seems to require the most ongoing attention.

 

Our meeting this month explores media archiving at the Library of Congress; How they do it, how they have developed the systems they have and use, and how others can decide to develop their own media archiving plans.

 

Our presenter will be James Snyder, Senior Systems Administrator at the Library of Congress.
