2014 Preservation Section Business Meeting and Agenda


I hope that if you are attending the Society of American Archivists Annual meeting in Washington, D. C. next week, you will take time to attend the Preservation Section Meeting! The meeting will take place on Thursday, August 14, at 3:30 to 5:30 pm in room Washington 6, Exhibition Level at the conference hotel.



After a brief business meeting there will be an update from Terry Baxter, our Council Representative, and then Holly Robertson will briefly discuss the results from the latest Preservation Statistics survey.


We will also have a fabulous program discussing some current audio/video projects that have been funded by IMLS and NEH.  This main program will include the following panelists:

·       Bill Veillette, NEDCC, discussing IRENE project which is funded by both NEH and IMLS. 

·       Karen Cariani, WGBH,  discussing trends in preserving modern video/film related to an NEH grant to WGBH.     

·       Carl Fleischauer, Library of Congress, discussing preservation of sound recordings, the FADGI program and Sound Directions

In addition, both Robert Horton, IMLS, and Joel Wurl, NEH,  will briefly discuss grant programs supporting preservation and the projects featured on the panel.


I look forward to seeing all of you!
