Cultural Heritage Archives: Networks, Innovation & Collaboration
A Symposium at the Library of Congress
Sept. 26-27, 2013

The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress will hold a  symposium entitled 
Cultural Heritage Archives: Networks, Innovation &  Collaboration on Sept. 26-27, 2013.

The symposium is free and open to the public.  Cultural heritage  archives serve as 
valuable repositories of memory and knowledge that  document the ongoing community-based 
creativity of individuals and  groups. During the past decade, there has been an 
increasing  acknowledgement of the value and power of developing such archives at  all 
levels, from very local and informal collections to large national  and international 
repositories.

The Cultural Heritage Archives symposium aims to energize the  discussion of ethnographic 
archival thought and practice by presenting  fresh and dynamic strategies for 
contemporary archival realities. It  will also provide a forum for new voices to present 
and discuss  emerging archival initiatives as well as case studies focused on  several 
key topics for a public audience. The symposium will combine  longer presentations by 
invited speakers with short papers generated  through this call.

Symposium Sessions:
*   Session I: Users of Cultural Heritage Archival Materials
*   Session II: Preservation and Digital Stewardship
*   Session III: Archival Description
*   Session IV: Education and Training
*   Session V: Sharing Resources
*   Session VI: Forging Archival Collaborations and Alliances
