We know what we cannot do: Being the Head of the UPM Music Department, where ARCPA was established, many prospective advantages of an archive cannot be used as financial support and staff education in archival matters is limited. Nevertheless, there are specific academic and educational activities that are useful and inspiring to others that I am going to share in examples applying advanced technology.

We know what we need: Being the chief administrator of the ATML at the Lao National Library, I experienced over a period of 18 years many difficult changes in archival procedures. Moving to a new building that was constructed based on planes made in the 1990s is one of them. I will focus on in examples with a specific emphasize on co-operation with governmental and international stakeholders.

We know why it does not work: educated as an AV archivist at UPM and being employed in a large University of Colombo, I want to give some examples for obstacles in promoting AV archiving from the viewpoint of actual users. Drawing parallels to other developmental issues, I want to focus on human failures in dealing with fast technology turnovers and societal needs.

Xiao Mei & Gisa Jähnichen
We know how it should work: Both working at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music that is well equipped with technology, space, and manpower, we want to draw attention to the urgency of promoting AV resources. In examples we present how we want things being organized and used, and how it appears in daily practice with a critical focus on evolving viewpoints of future archivists.
