Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Repositories focused on popular music typically are relatively young departments found within research libraries or museums. The nature and wide public recognition of the subject matter provide archivists with unique opportunities and challenges for collecting, preserving, providing access to, and promoting archival materials to large audiences who often are unfamiliar with archives. The panelists address collecting strategies, media preservation, adapting traditional archival processing, and exhibit development, and then welcome Q&A with the audience.
