Friday & Saturday, April 26th & 27th | 10am-4pm | All Ages
People protect what they love most. Whether it’s formalized in museums and archives or on an individual basis, societies have continued to develop ways to preserve and share their most treasured items. But what happens when disaster strikes? When an institution catches fire? A neighborhood floods? A website gets hacked?…
Join us for PreserveIT! 2019 as we explore disasters and their impact on preservation across industries. Featuring speakers, demonstrations, and displays, we’ll dive into challenges for professional archivists and amateur collectors. From disaster planning and prediction to recovery and restoration, hear real-life stories from the people working to protect our personal and public cultural heritage.
