SESSION 309 - Streamlining Processing of Audiovisual Collections for Preservation and Access

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Archivists who manage audiovisual collections process materials at the item level for practical reasons: items arrive insufficiently labeled, unidentified, or inaccessible for playback. As a result, the descriptive emphasis is on the physical object itself and on format and condition characteristics that address preservation concerns, often without contextualizing the object as part of a collection for access by researchers. Panelists address streamlining processing to balance the needs of both preservation and access.
