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.
