September 15-18, 2003
Library and Archives of Canada
395 Wellington Street
Ottawa, Ontario,

Hosted by the Canadian Conservation Institute, the Library and
Archives of Canada, and the Canadian Heritage Information Network,
this symposium is intended to increase awareness of the issues
surrounding electronic records by bringing expert and leading-edge
opinions to a large audience including small and medium-sized
archives, libraries, and museums. The program will be based on the
chronological decisions that need to be made as electronic records
come into heritage institutions. The focus will be on making
decisions and finding practical solutions that can be implemented
immediately. In addition to formal papers there will be a poster
session and trade show. Tours, receptions, and a banquet are also
planned. The symposium will appeal to anyone interested in the
preservation of electronic records.

In conjunction with Symposium 2003, the organizers are planning a
special event for the general public. Preservation Quest: How to
preserve your home movies, CDs, videos, and more will take place
Sunday, September 14, 2003 from 1 to 5 p.m. Designed to raise public
awareness about the conservation issues surrounding their own
personal electronic records, this fun, interactive, and informative
afternoon will include short information sessions, tours of a
state-of-the-art music studio, films, and booths were the public can
talk to the experts.
