On July 17-18, the Stanford Media Preservation Lab team welcomed a small group of media preservation professionals from around the region and across the country to our home on the Stanford Redwood City campus for two days of “unconferencing". While Stanford has been a leader in media preservation among academic libraries for over a decade, this was our first time hosting a community-oriented event with the goal of advancing our collective work: to ensure ongoing, long-term access to audiovisual recordings of all kinds in the interest of scholarly research, artistic continuity, and the public good.

The Stanford Media Preservation Lab (SMPL) team was thrilled to host Evita Feldentāle and Lelde Neimane, our partners in the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia audiovisual archive project, on May 31 at SMPL’s facilities in Redwood City.  Lelde is the archive curator and oral historian, while Evita is responsible for developing detailed descriptions, including English abstracts, for each of the 4,000 recorded oral histories in the archive. Through a multi-year project between the Museum and Stanford Libraries, this unique collection has been digitized for preservation and access at Stanford. All of the project work has been done in a distributed fashion between our respective locations plus the digitization vendor's facility, so it is a genuine treat to meet together as a team!
