AABC's "Audiovisual Records in a Digital Age" Webinar

AABC's "Audiovisual Records in a Digital Age" Webinar

The AABC is pleased to partner with the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at
UBC to present our 7th webcast roundtable on "Audiovisual Records in a
Digital Age". The webcast will be held on *Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from
10:30 - 11:30am (PST).*


Motion picture films and audio and video recordings are found in every
archival collection. These visual records play an important part of
documenting our history but are at risk in our modern digital age due to
media degradation and format obsolescence. Our panel of speakers will share
their experiences managing audiovisual records and their thoughts on
access, preservation and digitization.

Joining our roundtable will be:

  1. Jana Grazley - Digital Archivist, City of Vancouver Archives <http://vancouver.ca/your-government/city-of-vancouver-archives.aspx>
  2. Karen Knights - Manager, Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive, VIVO Media Arts Centre <http://www.vivomediaarts.com/>
  3. Ember Lundgren - Preservation Manager, Archives and Museum Operations, Royal BC Museum <https://royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/bc-archives/info/about-bc-archives>
  4. Shyla Seller - Archivist, Simon Fraser University Archives <http://www.sfu.ca/archives.html>
  5.  Kristy Waller - Archivist, Western Front <https://front.bc.ca/>
