The Library of Congress on Oct. 20 will present “Preservation Roadmaps for the 21st Century: Transitioning to a Digital Future,” a symposium to address the challenges facing cultural heritage
institutions as they balance the preservation needs of legacy collections with the growing and complex demands presented by the collection of converted and born-digital assets.
The day-long program, organized by the Library’s Preservation Directorate, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, in Room 119 on the first floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C.
Presenters at the symposium will include senior managers from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, Smithsonian Institution, National Park Service, Library of Congress, the Council on Library and Information Resources, and various foundations.
Collection and project managers, developers, caretakers and funders are invited to register for the symposium. Program and registration information can be found at www.loc.gov/preservation/outreach/symposia/transition/.
The Oct. 20 symposium is sponsored by the Library’s Preservation Directorate and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). Additional support is provided by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC).
