#PresTC2020 Preservation Week Twitter Conference

Join us on Wednesday, April 29th 2020 for #PresTC2020, a Preservation Week Twitter Conference hosted by the Society of American Archivists Preservation Section. This free and inclusive conference on Twitter will present a series of lightning talks that we hope will be of interest to librarians, archivists, and anyone who may care about preserving cultural heritage.

Each speaker will have 10 minutes to present their talk, and then take questions from you, the audience. Of course, this is Twitter, so the Q&A can just be the start of the conversation!

Follow along with the hashtag #PresTC2020 and other #PreservationWeek content on Twitter.
