November 29-December 2 2017 New Orleans, Louisiana — AMIA Annual Conference. VT Boston heard from archivists responsible for audiovisual collections as well as from fellow service providers at this year’s annual AMIA convention. There will be plenty of work for us to do in 2018, helping meet the modern audiovisual archiving challenge. We’ll be continuing to connect the best old with the best new technology for digitizing a broad range of media formats. We’ll also be adding more discussion topics to our website based on ideas gathered at the convention. Thanks to all who stopped by to see us in New Orleans this year!
