Workshop on AV Collections for Non-Specialist Librarians

16 Aug 2011
San Juan, Puerto Rico

This workshop will provide a basic introduction to all aspects of audiovisual collections management and preservation, in response to a felt need to equip the “forgotten people” of audiovisual archiving who are charged with caring for collections about which they have limited professional expertise. The session is intended to open the gateway to networks of contacts and sources of knowledge which the individual can pursue after the conference at their own pace.
