We’re excited to announce the following three new speakers participating in the 2016 ACA@UBC Symposium: Preserving Liquid Communication, taking place at UBC from February 10 to 12, 2016: Peter Meiszner and Houston White (UBC Public Affairs Office) and Emily Monks-Leeson (Library and Archives Canada). The symposium will focus on the preservation of informal communications in cloud environments generated through the use of social media. More details about the Symposium here.
We are screening In the Name of Rose starting at 6pm at SLAIS on Monday, November 23. We’re also having a raffle, see details below.
The Name of the Rose is a 1986 film directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, based on the book of the same name by Umberto Eco. Sean Connery is the Franciscan friar William of Baskerville and Christian Slater is his apprentice Adso of Melk, who are called upon to solve a deadly mystery in a medieval abbey (from Wikipedia).
Raffle Details: Anyone over 19 can buy the tickets; all money raised goes towards the symposium! Prices: 1 for $1 or 8 for $5. Prizes: 5 t-shirts that say “Archivists are RAD” and 2 $50 gift cards to Spa Utopia (only possible to win 1 prize/person). Time: Around 8 pm or whenever the movie finishes. You don’t have to present at the draw to win.
