Basic CMYKAs part of its ongoing 40th Anniversary celebrations, the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress will present “Collections, Collaborations & Connections,” a free public symposium here at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The panels will highlight the Center’s unparalleled collections, explore innovative approaches to cultural documentation, and focus on current best practices regarding ownership rights and access to archival resources in today’s rapidly changing digital landscape. Research scholars, community members, documentarians, and archivists at a range of cultural institutions will discuss historical initiatives, current challenges, and emerging trends in dialogue with audience members and American Folklife Center staff. Registration is not required for this event.

We hope to see you next week!

  1. Very good & timely event as I find it as an answer to my dreams for cultural preservation initiatives in my constituency. It is dire felt need at every turn around me. I won’t miss this event. But, make the archive version available, please.

    • We will be recording the whole event on video and presenting it on the Library’s website. We will note on the blog when the video becomes available. Thanks for your interest!
