Title:The Future of Digital Preservation and Access
Cost:$15 for non-members, free for Cultural Connections Members

The modern age is characterized by the increasing use and comfort with digital technology. As a result, museums and other cultural institutions are changing how the public interacts with and views the objects and places which, in the past, could only be visited in person. How are these organizations taking the exhibition and preservation of their subject matter to the next level? What are the ramifications of these changes for those who work in and visit our places of cultural and scientific importance? Is digital preservation the only way to preserve our legacy for future generations?

Join us as we explore these questions and more on our interdisciplinary panel.

We are pleased to have the following speakers:
