The Association of Canadian Archivists Student Chapter at the University of British Columbia (ACA@UBC) is delighted to present its ninth annual international Seminar and Symposium, Managing the Analogue, which will be held at UBC from February 9 to 10, 2017.
International in scope, the Seminar and Symposium will include both traditional and forward-thinking perspectives on analogue materials residing in archival spaces. In a time where our archival backlogs are steadily increasing, questions must be asked about how we can manage an often overwhelming amount of physical records. Furthermore, in an increasingly digital world, archives must have a solid understanding of how to regulate analogue materials before they can hope to proficiently and effectively manage digital records. In our attempts to manage the analogue, we must respect the past but also look ahead to the future and try to understand how these documents can be made to stand the test of time.
