Spearheaded by Pen Institute and Bard College in collaboration with Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, the project will eventually hold and preserve 20 years of Russian independent media. Please join us for a discussion with the team behind the RIMA to learn more about the project and to share your feedback on the project. Librarians, archivists, and scholars are especially encouraged to attend. RIMA aims to serve as a model for archiving and preserving independent media around the world and making it accessible for all.
