AABC Roundtables (2014-2018)

A series of Roundtables were held between October 2014 - March 2018 in partnership with the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC. The IKBLC webcast program enabled the AABC to livestream the discussion to our local membership and members of the international archival community. Participants watching the webcast were able to participate in the discussion through the use of emails and twitter feedback. Previously recorded Roundtables are available HERE.
