Further changes to IASA's mailing list

IASA's public mailing list was moved to a Google group in September. It has however become necessary to use a new platform, so the list has been migrated again, this time to a new service hosted by IONOS, the web hosting company used by IASA.

The list address itself is unchanged: list@iasa-web.org

2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Your Window to the World"

Add your event!

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October - is a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honour audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that safeguard our heritage for future generations. Around the world audiovisual archives join together annually on this day to celebrate their work with events that not only highlight the vulnerability of these valuable materials, but also to celebrate the often unheralded work of the institutions that provide protection and preservation, ensuring their availability in the future.

This year, the theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is "Your Window to the World".

Changes to the IASA listserv

IASA’s mailing list has been migrated to a Google Groups system with a new address. The list replaces the Listserv that was maintained and hosted for 17 years by the National Library of Norway under the care of Lars Gaustad. Our thanks to Lars and the Library for their long-standing support in this way.

All subscribers to the Listserv have been transferred to the new list. Further instructions including signing up, or cancelling your sign-up, are available at www.iasa-web.org/mailing-lists.
