Why Go Back to Basics?

You may ask why was the theme, Preservation: Back to Basics, chosen for the September 19 Amigos online conference? “We have been getting more calls from our members about basic preservation issues, so we wanted to meet that need,” said Gina Minks, Imaging and Preservation Manager. Gina says that preservation is often a low priority and in the current economy many people are being asked to do an array of preservation tasks without having any training.

With over 15 sessions offered, the Back to Basics online conference hopes to help fill some of those training gaps. “I am really excited about this conference because we have many sessions covering a variety of preservation topics,” said Gina, “and the one thing I love about Amigos conferences is that when you register, you have access to all the session recordings. You don’t need to miss anything!”
