Throughout the history of the ADS, we have covered the globe giving presentations, attending workshops and conferences, and writing papers. In an effort to increase transparency, we have decided to make a selection of presentations from key projects and preservation work available for download. These presentations are available as PDFs that can be downloaded from either the map or the dropdown list found below. These presentations cover a variety of topics including preservation work and projects that we have been a part of. For a snapshot of the outreach of the ADS, a chart can be found at the bottom of the page.

ADS outreach locations

Below is a map that shows the outreach that the ADS has accomplished over its history. Spanning over 30 countries, each point shows the who, what, when, and where of each of these presentations. Additionally, presentations have been listed by year that include a download link and preview of the presentations given by ADS staff, some of which are not listed below. These presentations can be added to the map via the button above the map.
