METRO and AVPreserve announce the launch of More Podcast, Less Process (, a new podcast series featuring in-depth and wide ranging interviews with archivists, librarians, preservationists, technologists, and information professionals about interesting work and projects within and involving archives, special collections, and cultural heritage.

With Co-Hosts Jefferson Bailey of METRO and Josh Ranger of AVPreserve, guests will discuss their individual work and its relation to the broader archival enterprise. Topics will cover professional issues that impact archivists and special collections librarians today, including appraisal and acquisition, arrangement and description, outreach and education, collection management, physical and digital preservation, and infrastructure and technology.

Kicking off the series is CSI Special Collections: Digital Forensics and Archives featuring digital archivists Mark Matienzo of Yale University and Donald Mennerich of New York Public Library discussing digital forensics and other matters involved with acquiring and managing digital collections.  Episode 1 is now available through iTunes, Internet Archive, and as a direct download via the podcast series’s website. 

More Podcast, Less Process is part of METRO’s Keeping Collections programming. Keeping Collections was launched to ensure the sustainability and accessibility of New York State’s archival collections as part of the New York State Archives Documentary Heritage Program. Keeping Collections provides a variety of free and affordable services to any not-for-profit organization in the metropolitan New York area that collects, maintains, and provides access to archival materials.
