A panel discussion at the British Academy of Arts and Sciences held on April 9th 2014. This event explored the challenges posed by record keeping in both its historical and contemporary contexts.

The Detroit Historical Society is proud to present the launch of its new Detroit Video History Archive.

The goal of this presentation is to highlight to the audience the important role that archives and records play in the world around them and to foster within them a greater appreciation of the need for archives and archivists.
