Works in Progress Webinar: The nuts and bolts of conducting an efficient AV survey

In this webinar we will demystify the process of an AV assessment: how to get started, how to determine the essential elements, and how to retool midstream to fit your institution’s needs.

Presenters

Ben Harry, Curator of Audiovisual Materials and Media Arts History, Brigham Young University

Description

Audiovisual materials exist in just about every library and repository, yet many struggle with determining first steps to address the needs of AV collections. These materials require immediate action, but it is so easy to hesitate, especially when unsure of the technical specifics of your holdings. In this webinar, we will walk through the AV audit/assessment conducted in the BYU manuscript special collections, in which we tried to apply More Product, Less Process approaches to achieve maximum efficiency without sacrificing the most important data. Join us for a step-by-step overview of how we tried to make careful decisions as quickly as possible, while always keeping in mind the end goals of digital preservation and increased accessibility.

This webinar will be of interest to any librarians and archivists who have AV items in their collections.
