Course Description (1 day, .75 CEUs, 5 ARCs)

Audiovisual media are found in most archival repositories and present numerous preservation, access, and technical challenges. Recent studies show that between degradation and equipment obsolescence, most media will be unable to be preserved in another 10-15 years. Through lecture, writing exercises, and hands-on activities, participants will learn how to plan and implement the digitization and preservation of audiovisual materials.

Upon completion of this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Implement a survey of holdings for audiovisual media and prioritize for digitization;

  • Recognize a/v digitization standards and identify resources to follow standards as they develop;

  • Create and implement a plan for digitization projects; and

  • Identify digitization funding sources.

Who should attend?
Archivists, librarians, and museum professionals.

Knowledge assumed for this course:
A basic understanding of physical audio and video formats and general knowledge of the outcomes of digitization projects for any format. Knowledge of basic archival and preservation theory and practice.

Attendance is limited to 35.
