“Photo albums, home movies, handwritten letters, an unused old computer with important family documents still stored on it: as precious as these items may be, they’ll last only as long as the paper, videotape or hard drive they’re on. To make matters worse, they’re often stored in attics and basements — the worst possible environments for preservation. We explore high and low tech ways to protect and store family memorabilia, and the smartest way to migrate different materials to digital formats.”

With Guests Bert Lyons (Folklife Specialist and Digital Assets Manager at American Folklife Center, Library of Congress), Bergis Jules (University Archivist, George Washington University), and George Blood (Owner, George Blood LP Audio Visual Preservation, Philadelphia, PA).
