New ICDH video: Audiovisual Records - Preservation principles and standards

The International Centre for Documentary Heritage (ICDH), under the auspices of UNESCO, supports and promotes preservation and conservation of documentary heritage around the world.

ICDH has recognized IASA’s role as a very active and influential organization for the work of sound and audiovisual archives. It acknowledges IASA’s continued efforts for global cooperation and remarkable contributions to strengthening co-operation between archives and other institutions that preserve sound and audiovisual documents.

As a result, ICDH has collaborated with IASA to produce this 12-minute documentary for Member States of the Memory of the World (MoW) programme. The documentary is part of ICDH’s initiative for sharing the world’s best practices in preservation, management and utilization of documentary heritage. The objective of the video is ‘capacity building’ through virtual training of the member states and relevant institutions across the globe.
