Media Preservation at the Library of Congress (part 2)
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.
In our January 2014 meeting, James Synder presented the systems and facility that the Library of Congress has developed to meet its charter of maintaining a catalog of our history for the minimum mandate of 150 years.
This meeting continues our look into the Library by doing a “Deep Dive” into Media Preservation. James will discuss the challenges, requirements, and possibly the art.
This meeting made possible by the generous assistance of Blackmagic Design.
Refreshments will be provided.
