Audiovisual materials are abundant in collections - from moving images on film or video, to audiocassettes, CDs and DATs. Despite their constant presence on the shelf, the data they hold is at risk from the threats of degradation and obsolescence. Transferring to more durable formats will help ensure their preservation, but where do you start? Reformatting projects can be overwhelming, and this webinar is intended to help you get started. Topics addressed will include what you need to know before planning a reformatting project, reformatting in-house, and knowing when to seek out a vendor.

A Preservation Plan is an essential institutional document that helps collecting institutions thoughtfully and carefully chart a course for the preservation of their collections for five to ten years. Without planning, it can be nearly impossible to effectively budget for staff time and resources. As a result, the care of priceless collections can suffer. This workshop will provide guidance on how to create a Preservation Plan and will provide participants with the opportunity to explore sample plans as well as practice creating goals, objectives, and strategies to make an effective plan.

Identifying the materials in archival collections and understanding how to prioritize preservation is an integral part of collections care and management. Audiovisual materials can present particularly challenging issues and require specialized skills for appropriate care. This workshop will address the different types of audio, video, and film media most frequently found in collections, discuss each format’s associated preservation risks, and introduce methods of prioritization. In addition, the steps that drive a successful audiovisual digitization project from start to finish will be outlined and discussed. Hands-on activities will give participants the chance to use what they have learned, and will provide opportunities for discussion of real-life challenges faced by those responsible for the stewardship of audiovisual materials.
