The goal of the AMIA + DLF Travel Awards is to bring
cross-pollinators—developers and software engineers who can provide unique
perspectives to moving image and sound archivist’s work with digital
materials, and share a vision of the library world from their
perspective—to the Association of Moving Image Archivists conference, Oct
8-11, in Savannah, GA.
