Remote Collections Management
Two online panel discussions addressing remote collections management: Accessing the Vaults and Workflow & Alternative Strategies
Registration Deadline: 02 June 2020

Remote Collections Management
Organized by: AMIA
Online
,

DAY #1: ACCESSING THE VAULTS
As cultural heritage practitioners working with audiovisual media, many of our jobs involve handling physical objects, but social distancing and work remotely during COVID-19 has prevented direct access to our onsite collections and vaults. Regular collection care and preservation priorities have taken on new meanings and many of our responsibilities have been dramatically altered. What resources for disaster preparedness can we use during quarantine? What resources do we need to develop as a community that are lacking or non-existent? This panel will discuss how people have adapted to continue to interact and steward their collections and what now needs to be considered.


 


DAY #2: WORKFLOWS & ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES
Regardless of whether people have access to their collections, many of us have had to develop hybrid ways of working while we are quarantined. Remote collection management requires new workflows, equipment and advocacy to enable us to continue our work. In our current situation there are numerous questions that have become crucial such as: When a significant portion of our work requires handling physical objects or access to systems that do not have remote access how do we prioritize our work? What will our staff and work environments look like after the Safer-at-Home order is lifted? How will staff cope with the backlog of digital material and content generated while many of us work from home? Panelists will discuss these questions as well as case studies, documentation they’ve developed, new workflows, communication strategies, online platforms, security measures and general pandemic preparation.

Crowdsourcing Metadata Within Your Communities
How to Gather Contextual Metadata for Your Moving Image Collections
Registration Deadline: 29 June 2020

Crowdsourcing Metadata Within Your Communities
Organized by: AMIA
Online
,

One of the major issues discussed by both the Regional Audiovisual Archives (RAVA) and News/Doc/TV Committee (NDTV) is that the majority of local television news film collections are still largely undiscoverable at the end of the second decade of the 21st century.  Crowdsourcing the description of local TV news collections is one potential solution. Unfortunately, there are few available models for leveraging regional expertise to efficiently tag collection content with minimal funding and staffing. Natasha Margulis, Digital & Political Collections Archivist at Arkansas State University, will share her model for handling the descriptive metadata the archives are gathering to enhance discoverability and accessibility of a local TV news film collection which was acquired without the aid of broadcast scripts or other relevant descriptive documentation. The model she proposes can be used to increase discoverability of local TV news and other regional moving image collections regardless of staff size or budget.


Presented by Natasha Margulis, project manager for the KAIT-8 Local Television News project

The summer school "Digital Archives" is a 5-day, practice-oriented educational offer directed at staff members of audiovisual archives who would like to enhance their knowledge about digital environments and processes. The ongoing process of digitalisation presents film archives with the necessity of changing their workflows, strategies, and policies and of providing their staff with additional training. For this reason, we decided to establish the "Digital Archives" Summer School in collaboration with the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and Deutsche Kinemathek Berlin. The first edition focuses on the subject of data literacy and presentation strategies.


The full programme, additional information, and the registration form are available on the dedicated page of the Filmuni Summer School website. Registrations will close on 1 August 2020.


The FIAF offers two scholarships covering the participation fee. Early-Bird discount before 30 March 2020.
