Preservation Week 2021 Twitter Conference





The Society of American Archivists Preservation Section is holding a Twitter Conference on April 28th as part of Preservation Week 2021. This free and inclusive conference will cover a range of preservation related topics for archivists and librarians (or any interested party!). You can follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #PresTC21 and ask questions to the conference “speakers”.

Each speaker will have a 15 minute time slot allocated to their presentation. There is no theme beyond “preservation” with the hope that the will be subject matter of interested to a broad range of audiences to help support the educational mission of Preservation Week.

This Conference has been modeled after the Icon Twitter Conference (#IconTC) and Public Archaeology Twitter Conference (#PATC).
