Archive-It partners, Internet Archive staff, and friends will meet at ARCHIVES*RECORDS 2018, the joint annual meeting of CoSA, NAGARA, and SAA in Washington, DC. The annual partner meeting is an opportunity for web archivists and their peers to meet one another and share their goals, projects, ideas, and questions, so we hope to see you there!

This year’s meeting will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 14. Watch this space for more program details and opportunities to contribute as the date approaches.

Location

This year’s meeting will be held at the Conservation Pavilion, a new LEED Certified indoor/outdoor event space at the National Zoo. Our donation will support important wildlife conservation, science, and public education programs. We’re also excited that this year’s event will be eco-friendly with compostable plates, cutlery, and napkins. There will be a filtered water dispenser on-site, please remember to bring your reusable water bottles so we can keep waste to a minimum.

 

          

 

Smithsonian’s National Zoo is free and open to the public daily from 8 AM to 7 PM. We encourage you to visit baby gorilla Moke at the zoo before the meeting!
