In cultural organizations, internally-produced digital video materials often function both as vital information resources and as conduits for public engagement. As key components of institutional memory, these assets undoubtedly deserve to be safeguarded for future access. But implementing effective storage and access infrastructures for digital media can prove challenging, especially for organizations equipped with limited funding and staff.
Co-organized by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) and the National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information (NDSR Art), this panel will bring together specialists from a diverse range of institutional contexts to share their experiences preserving and activating digital video.
NDSR Art is a partnership of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and ARLIS/NA, made possible with generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) via a 2016 Laura Bush 21st-Century Librarian Program grant.
