Archivists face the urgent task of migrating audiovisual media before a significant piece of the 20th century's historical record is lost to posterity. Once these materials have been digitized, how do archivists preserve them for the long term? How can we innovatively provide access and encourage use, given the rights complexities often associated with audiovisual materials? This session focuses on these questions through the lens of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting.
