Slides From a Recent Conference Presentation About the American Archive of Public Broadcasting Now Online

2015-08-28_12-03-26The American Archive of Public Broadcasting (based at the Library of Congress) is a project we’re interested in and have been posting about for several years. Links to a few of these posts at the very bottom of this post.

The presentation, titled “Keeping the Broadcast Historic Record: An Archive of Public Media in the Making” (slides are also embedded below) was given last Sunday (August 22, 2015) at the 2015 Society of American Archivists (SAA) conference in Cleveland, Ohio.

From the SAA Conference Web Site (Blurb About Presentation):

Archivists face the urgent task of migrating audiovisual media before a significant piece of the 20th century’s historical record is lost to posterity. Once these materials have been digitized, how do archivists preserve them for the long term? How can we innovatively provide access and encourage use, given the rights complexities often associated with audiovisual materials? This session focuses on these questions through the lens of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting.
