Podcast:* interview with Rick Prelinger, an archivist, writer, filmmaker,
outsider librarian and founder of the Prelinger Archives*
Rick Prelinger is an archivist, writer, filmmaker, and outsider librarian.
For the past twenty-five years, the founder of the Prelinger Archives has
amassed film material that is generally ignored by traditional archives,
resulting in a collection that prioritizes access and reuse as methods of
preservation. Rick has partnered with the Internet Archive (of which he is a
board member) to make 2,100 films available online for free viewing,
downloading and reuse. With Megan Prelinger, he's co-founder of Prelinger
Library, an appropriation-friendly private research library open to the
public in downtown San Francisco. Rick Prelinger speaks on the future of
archives and issues relating to access to archives and culture.
