The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) and DLF will be sending Justine Thomas to attend the 2021 virtual DLF/AMIA Hack Day and AMIA spring conference! As this year’s “cross-pollinator,” Justine will enrich both the Hack Day event and the AMIA conference, sharing a vision of the library world from her perspective.

About Hack Day and the Award
The seventh AMIA+DLF Hack Day (online April 1-15) will be a unique opportunity for practitioners and managers of digital audiovisual collections to join with developers and engineers to remotely collaborate to develop solutions for digital audiovisual preservation and access.
The goal of the AMIA + DLF Award is to bring “cross-pollinators”–developers and software engineers who can provide unique perspectives to moving image and sound archivists’ work with digital materials, share a vision of the library world from their perspective, and enrich the Hack Day event–to the conference.
