Preserving Audiovisual Heritage in the Arab Region: Resources for Archivists, Librarians and Collectors
To mark World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on 27 October, the Library, as the IFLA PAC Regional Center for Arab Countries and the Middle East, invites you to join Manoubia Hermi, curator and head of the National Sound Archive at the Centre for Arab and Mediterranean Music, and Hazem Jamjoum, Gulf History Audio Curator at the British Library, in a conversation on audiovisual preservation in the Arab region.
During this event, the speakers will present two new resources for audiovisual preservation that are the product of cooperation between Qatar National Library, the Centre for Arab and Mediterranean Music, the British Library, and UCL- Qatar. The first of these is an information resource for the identification of audiovisual carriers and best practices for their conservation and preservation. The second is the launch of a survey of audiovisual collections across the MENA region. The session will be moderated by Maxim Nasra, Book Conservation Specialist at the Library.
The event will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams.
