Message from the CCAAA President

Dear friends of our audiovisual heritage,

The audio and visual record of human accomplishment has been exploding in scope in recent times, as have the challenges to preserving and accessing that vast body of knowledge. Audiovisual records created a century or more ago, using now-obsolete technologies, are in particular danger of loss or decay. The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, sponsored by UNESCO and the CCAAA, is intended to highlight the good work being done around the world to preserve and make available this important heritage, and encouraging others to follow those examples. The theme this year is "Archives at Risk - Protecting the World's Identities." I encourage all of our colleagues to contribute information about their programmes to preserve and make accessible our audio and visual heritage, especially those occurring on or around the date of World Day, October 27, 2015.

Tim Brooks
Past President, Association of Recorded Sound Collections
