  • 1.  Call for Proposals: Preservation Twitter Conference DEADLINE 4/9

    Posted 12 days ago

    Dear colleagues,

    As part of Preservation Week 2021, the Society of American Archivists Preservation Section is holding a Twitter Conference on Wednesday April 28th. The intent of this conference is to bring together archivists, librarians, and other interested parties to present a variety of preservation related topics, including this year's Preservation Week theme of Preserving Community Archives.

    We are currently accepting submissions for presentations! Participation is encouraged from all forms of practitioners with a project or research on the preservation of library and archival materials. In particular, we would like to encourage submissions from students and individuals of diverse backgrounds and organizations. Visit this link for more information and to view the call for papers.

    Please submit your presentation proposal here. The submission deadline is April 9th.

    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. The hope is that there will be a variety of subject matters of interest to a broad range of audiences, including this year's theme, to help support the educational mission of Preservation Week.

    If you have any questions, please contact Patrick Daglaris, SAA Preservation Section Communications Member: patrick.daglaris@okstate.edu.

    Best,
    Patrick
