An Introduction to Managing Audio-Visual Collections

November 28, 2023 - 09:00 - 12:00

This half-day workshop will provide a broad introductory overview of key issues affecting audio-visual collections.  From audio to film to video, there is a huge spectrum of formats and issues to be aware of as an archivist. We will discuss format identification, appraisal and assessment of incoming AV donations, common preservation issues for a variety of formats, digitization, digital file standards and metadata, and providing access. The focus will be on physical records, with a brief discussion of born-digital AV material. Please bring concerns that your archive is working through, and we can explore those issues together.   

Format: Lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and Q&A
