I am happy to announce that this fall’s INFO 668 Projects in Moving Images and Sound Archives class will be partnering with the National History Archive of LGBT Center of NYC. We will be primarily focusing on two collections: one with audiovisual media, including small-gauge film and VHS video that has been transferred to DVDs, as well as one that is primarily VHS that have been transferred to DVDs. We will digitize the film and migrate the DVDs to digital files, and re-digitize if necessary. We will be learning about and addressing a host of issues, including information organization, access, digital preservation, legal and ethical issues, among many others. For full-details, check-out the course syllabus.
[Update 12/11/19: The students’ final project is now available at gaycenter.prattsi.org]
