As this year’s Annual Meeting is in San Francisco, in the midst of Silicon Valley, what better place would there be to explore the history of Electronic Media? Interested in touring the labs and facilities used to preserve the equipment and products used to bring electronic media into the future?
Join your colleagues and fellow Annual Meeting attendees on a tour of two of the foremost facilities for electronic media preservation!

Join us on a tour of the Stanford University Labs: the Born-Digital/Forensic Lab as well as the Media Preservation Lab, two arms of the Stanford University Libraries’ Digitization Services. Following the tour, choose from one of the many local eateries*, and enjoy an outdoor lunch on the Stanford Lab grounds.

After lunch, take a trip to the Bay Area Video Coalition, one of the nation’s longest-standing non-profit video and audio preservation organizations. Take a tour through the facility, followed by a light reception, where you will be able to talk with members of the BAVC staff, and be given a more in-depth presentation on what goes into their preservation efforts.

As various art forms continue to improve and progress into the hereafter, being able to record and preserve these works will become more and more important. Bear witness to the programs who are working to make sure that that occurs. Sign up today. 
*Lunch costs not included.
