but were unable to attend the live conferences.  The videos will be
available for free on CCAHA's website at

Preservation leaders George Blood, President, Safe Sound Archives,
Philadelphia, PA; Alan Lewis, Consultant in Audiovisual Archives,
Washington, DC; and Sarah Stauderman, Preservation Manager,
Smithsonian Institution Archives, Washington, DC; present timely and
thorough audiovisual media preservation information in the following
video segments:

The entire A Race Against Time: Preserving Our Audiovisual Media
video series will be a permanent online resource available at

2009 debut.

These videos were made possible though funding from the Gladys
Krieble Delmas Foundation with additional support from the Institute
for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Andrew W. Mellon
