Audiovisual Collections Care in Tribal Archives

A continuing education program in preservation of audiovisual collections for tribal archives, libraries, and museums that includes establishment of five regional hubs (across the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii), delivery of six regional workshops for approximately 140 participants, development of preservation plans for select audiovisual collections, and development of educational resources, such as toolkits, guides, protocols, and templates for film inspection and digitization.

The Community Archiving Workshop, a project of the Association of Moving Image Archivists, proposes to address the widespread threat to a/v (film, video, audio) holdings in humanities collections through a series of regional workshops for tribal archives, libraries and museums (TALMs). In a 2012 survey, 60% of responding TALMs stated that they are stewards of important a/v recordings. In partnership with the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums, CAW proposes to support efforts to preserve and improve access to these collections by training tribal archivists and librarians to inventory and assess their collections, and to prioritize and prepare them for digitization. Each workshop involves group webinars, the delivery of online training models, and onsite workshops in which participants learn to identify different media formats and risk factors, establish controlled vocabulary for description of a/v collections, and document and prioritize collections for preservation.
