Preservation Week

The Library of Congress celebrates Preservation Week 2013 with a
special focus on saving the mementos-digital and analog
correspondence, photos, videos, scrapbooks and albums-of military
members and their families.

All the events are free and open to the public, and will take place
in the Library's James Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E.,
Washington, D.C. The Library's Preservation Week celebration also
includes an online exhibition, a webinar, and an international
lecture streamed live from the Library.
