One response to “Safeguarding sound and image collections

  1. Hello, this is a really great initiative. I wanted to introduce myself. I am Ellen, project manager for the Archive Education Research Institute. Among our ideas are to pluralize the archival field by keeping track of emerging trends among upcoming archival scholars in dialogue with more veteran archival thinkers. In addition, we are interested in building deeper relations with international communities thinking about archival practices and philosophies. I hope that we can stay in contact for future collaborations.
