    Instructors: Casey E. Davis, Rebecca Fraimow & Elizabeth Walters

    Description: In the 2015 NEA membership survey, one-third of NEA members indicated a desire to gain skills and expertise necessary to effectively manage, preserve, and provide access to their audiovisual collections. We’re excited to offer a day-long workshop focusing on the basics of moving image and recorded sound collections, taught by staff from the WGBH Media Library and Archives and Harvard Library’s Weissman Preservation Center. This workshop will cover the following topics: identification of analog and digital formats, basic care and handling, storage of analog and digital AV collections, inventorying analog collections, metadata for audiovisual materials, digitization best practices, characteristics of digital audiovisual files, rights and access, and digital repositories. Attendees will leave the workshop with confidence, knowledge and resources to ensure the preservation and access of the cultural heritage documented in their audiovisual collections.
