Internet Archive founders to discuss future of digital preservation at 2015 ALA Annual Conference

SAN FRANCISO—The Internet Archive started by archiving the Web, but now works with hundreds of librarians and partners to create digital collections both centralized and distributed. Join Internet Archive founder and digital librarian Brewster Kahle at this year’s 2015 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference when he discusses the challenges of presenting modern materials for each media type. The interactive session, titled “Building Libraries Together,” takes place from 10:30 to 11:30a.m. on Saturday, June 27, 2015, in San Francisco. The session will be held at the Moscone Convention Center in room 2007 of the West building.

The Internet Archive offers public access to historical collections that exist in digital formats. During the conference session, Kahle will share his vision of how cooperation, shared technology and risk can result in many winners in the digital library world.
