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.
