PreserveIT! 2019: Disasters
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Event supported by:
Belfor-Logo.jpg

People protect what they love most. Whether it’s formalized in museums and archives or on an individual basis, societies have continued to develop ways to preserve and share their most treasured items. But what happens when disaster strikes? When an institution catches fire? A neighborhood floods? A website gets hacked?...
 
Join us for PreserveIT! 2019 as we explore disasters and their impact on preservation across industries. Featuring speakers, demonstrations, and displays, we’ll dive into challenges for professional archivists and amateur collectors. From disaster planning and prediction to recovery and restoration, here real-life stories from the people working to protect our personal and public cultural heritage.

In the late 1970s Xerox attempted to commercialize the Xerox PARC's Alto and the "Office of the Future" by developing and releasing the relatively inexpensive Xerox Star workstation. Released in April of 1981, the Star featured a GUI, mouse, ethernet and a laser printer. As a follow up to the ContrAlto emulator, Living Computers is proud to announce their release of a Xerox Star Emulator called Darkstar.
