During the COVID-19 pandemic the professional and academic landscapes
have been drastically transformed. In response, the Association of
Moving Image Archivists’ Continuing Education Advocacy (CEA) Task
Force has programmed a series of Zoom webinars to address critical
issues that have emerged, as well as provide skills necessary in the
transition to working remotely.
Next week’s webinar is titled "The Remote Archivist: Alternative Archival
Workspaces" and will bring together a variety of media archivists who will
speak on accomplishing archival work outside of the traditional setting of
the archive, in addition to working from home.
