Have you ever been to the Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation of the Library of Congress? Me neither!

It’s also known as the National Audiovisual Conservation Center, and is located in a former Federal Reserve bunker in Culpeper, Virginia.
With more than 90 miles of shelving and 159 vaults for storing nitrate film, sound recordings, safety film, and videotape, the Packard Campus is the cornerstone of a national audio-visual preservation program.

In lieu of a visit, you can take a 14 minute vacation and tour the campus and facilities here.
