October 27 was World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. The theme for the 10th anniversary was "Archives at Risk - Protecting the World's Identities."
To commemorate the day, the Association for Recorded Sound Collections announces:
AMP! (ARSC Media & Publications), an online tool that lets you search all ARSC Journal articles, conference recordings, and slide presentations, by Keyword, Author, Title, Volume, and Year. The general public can access full-text PDFs of ARSC Journal Volumes 1 (1967) to 26 (1995). Conference recordings from 1994 to 2010 are available to the general public.
