Amigos Library Services’ Adventures in Archives online conference call for proposals is open to all!

Archivists, Preservationists, Genealogists and Local historians are engaged every day in the real work of documenting and revealing our past. This work - which is art and science requires great attention to detail, planning and commitment to the voices of the past. It demands endless technologies and continued funding. The breadth and depth of this work is evident in evolving physical and digital spaces. The contributions and impact of this work are immeasurable. It is a footprint that belongs to all of us.

Join us August 11, 2021, for Adventures in Archives - Where are we going and where have we been in preservation, digitization and local history. Throughout this day, a variety of peers and experts will explore the process, planning, progression and directions taken by librarians engaged in documenting history today.
