No country, even the most advanced in terms of digitization and conservation, is immune to the destruction of important collections and archives.
Archiving Tomorrow 2016 is a special two-day world conference highlighting the single most important issue facing audiovisual archives today -- saving the precious, endangered audiovisual world heritage before it is too late. Join experts for an invaluable information-packed event. Network, debate, discuss the issues, and learn about opportunities, strategies, and case-study solutions.
The Archiving Tomorrow 2016 conference on “Archives at Risk” will take place June 2-3, 2016, at the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin, Ireland.
