This is part 1 of a two-part series. Digital Preservation: Audiovisual Edition, Part 2 is the companion to this webinar.

“Digital Preservation: Audiovisual Edition” is a two-part series dedicated to the discussion of audio and video materials in a digital preservation context. From analog media digitally reformatted to born-digital audiovisual materials, this webinar series will cover the basics of understanding audiovisual media and how to consider these materials when engaged in preservation and access at your library or archive.

Part 1 of "Digital Preservation: Audiovisual Edition" is dedicated to the "nuts and bolts" of digital AV files—their technical characteristics and attendant considerations for preservation/access. Digital file carriers will be discussed as well as the digitization of analog AV materials. This latter topic will be discussed in the context of considerations made when files are prepared for digital preservation.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will come out of this webinar having learned to address three fundamental questions: What constitutes an archive of born digital AV? How can a library or archive curate and steward a born digital AV collection for preservation and access? How can archiving born digital AV be practical, efficient, and cost-effective?

Who Should Attend

Primary audience will be library staff and professionals who are involved in the digital preservation and access of audiovisual materials. The webinar will be structured with a lesson-plan that will give a novice the vocabulary and knowledge to understand larger concepts and technical aspects of digital preservation of audiovisual materials. Therefore, audience levels can range from novice to advanced.
