Hello and happy almost end of the week!
The Society of American Archivists recently published a new resource, Moving Image and Sound Collections for Archivists by Anthony Cocciolo, which may be of interest to some of you. Written for every archivist who has unearthed some carrier of moving image and sound and wondered what to do, the book gives best practices combined with guidance for specific media formats to preserve and make accessible the moving image and sound record. Cocciolo applies concepts of appraisal, description, and accessioning to audiovisual collections, providing a solid grounding for archivists in environments where resources for description, digitization, and storage are scarce.
As Snowden Becker, program manager of Moving Image Archive Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, says: "This book should have a place on the shelves of archivists who want to provide the very best care for their collections, which is to say, every archivist."
