PRE-CONFERENCE TOUR OF NAVCC

The Library of Congress invites registered conference attendees to tour the
new National Audio-Visual Conservation Center (NAVCC), in Culpeper,
Virginia, on May 27. Visitors will enjoy an in-depth tour of the
state-of-the-art facility that houses the sound-recording and moving-image
collections of the Library of Congress. The buildings on the 45-acre campus
provide 415,000 square feet of space for cataloging, re-formatting, and
storage of more than five million sound recordings, videotapes, motion
pictures, and born-digital works.

The library staff has planned this full-day open house especially for the
ARSC conference. Participants will be welcome in all the primary areas of
NAVCC: the Moving Image Section, Recorded Sound Section and Vault Spaces,
Digital Archive, Audio and Video Preservation Sections, Film Laboratory and
Nitrate Film Vaults, and the Mt. Pony Theater and Listening Auditorium.

Library staff will be on hand to discuss the facility and demonstrate their
work in many areas, including: high-end audio preservation suites for disc
and tape preservation; rooms for high-throughput audio digitization; IRENE
and SAMMA, new technologies for digitization of discs and videotapes;
vintage A/V equipment; cataloging and collection management tools and
strategies; processing of paper collections; new workflow management
software; and A/V conservation and storage strategies.

The NAVCC tour is limited to 100 people; reservations will be accepted on a
first-come, first-served basis. The $50-per-person fee for this optional
pre-conference tour includes round-trip bus transportation from the Liaison
Hotel and a box lunch. Due to expected demand, the tour is open only to
those who register for the conference.


ADDITIONAL PRE-CONFERENCE TOURS

be offered on May 27. Tours will depart from the lobby of the Liaison Hotel
at 1:00 p.m.

AWARDS BANQUET

The conference will conclude on the evening of May 30 with the annual Awards
Banquet at Clyde's of Gallery Place. The restaurant is located next to the
Verizon Center, in the heart of the vibrant 7th Street business district,
about eight blocks from the Liaison Hotel or 15-20 minutes by foot. We have
reserved the Piedmont Room, modeled after a grand Victorian saloon and
decorated with equestrian antiques. Winners of the 2008 and 2009 ARSC Awards
will be honored, and the Local Arrangements Committee is promising
additional entertainment. Tickets for the banquet are $50 per person.
