SOCIETY OF GEORGIA ARCHIVISTS SUMMER WORKSHOP

ARCHIVAL MANAGEMENT OF MOTION PICTURES AND RECORDED SOUND JULY 20, 2005,
9:00 AM-5:00 PM

ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER

This is an intense, one-day short course developed initially for the
Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) as a pre-conference, basic
training session covering film and video recording.  It was then
expanded with additional modules to include audio/sound recordings among
other topics.  The course is designed for persons who find themselves
involved with some or all of the "legacy" machine-based AV media:
mechanical and magnetic tape sound recordings, motion picture films,
separate film sound tracks and videotapes.  The focus is on the
fundamental nature of these various media and the application of
archival principles and procedures to them.  The curriculum deals with
concepts, terminology, technologies, basic conservation and preservation
methods, storage considerations, description, equipment needs and more.
The course typically also gives attendees as opportunity to network with
other people working in the field and to learn about what other
institutions, often nearby, that are facing similar challenges.
Attendees are encouraged to bring examples (or pictures) of problem
recording media or unusual equipment that they are challenged by. 

Participants:  The workshop is intended for archives, library and
historical society administrators, oral historians, archivists,
broadcasting and media librarians, conservators, stock footage
collections staff and preservation managers.  Film, audio and video
laboratory managers and sales persons seeking information about
providing services to the media archives community would also benefit.

Instructor:  Alan Lewis has been involved in audiovisual media since
1950: He has worked in TV and radio, as well as consulting with clients
as diverse and widespread as New York's Museum of Modern Art and
Oregon's State Historical Society. From 1991-2005 he worked for the
Special Media Archives Services Division of the National Archives and
Records, serving as Subject Area Expert-Audiovisual Preservation.  Lewis
is currently a consultant in preservation management. 

Cost:  SGA Members $115; Non-SGA Members $135.  The registration fee
includes a box lunch.  Registration is limited, registrants will receive
a confirmation letter by U.S. mail.  Registration deadline is July 1.
