TAPE workshop on management of audiovisual collections
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
18-24 April 2007
Librarians, archivists and curators in charge of audiovisual collections need
to know about the role of new technology in collection management. Digitisation
offers unprecedented opportunities for access to historical materials. But how
can it be combined with established preservation methods in an integrated
strategy, to ensure optimal access today as well as in the future?
In this 5-day workshop, the characteristics of film, video and sound recordings
and the different recording systems and devices will be reviewed. Specific
requirements for their handling and preservation will be related to the nature
and function of different kinds of audiovisual materials. The workshop will
explore the different transfer and conversion methods, technical requirements
in relation to quality, and long-term management of digital files. Issues will
be approached as management problems, and due attention will be given to
aspects like needs assessment, setting priorities, planning, budgeting and
outsourcing, and project management
Participants will acquire knowledge of technical issues that will enable them
to make informed decisions about the role of digitisation in care and
management of audiovisual collections. The speakers will present outlines of
issues and practical cases, and a substantial part of the workshops will be
spent on discussions and group assignments to develop participants' skills in
finding their own solutions.
All those responsible for audiovisual collections in archives, museums,
libraries. For this introductory course, no specific technical expertise is
The workshop will be in English. Participants are expected to have a working
