This workshop might be of interest to those of you managing moving image (analog and digital) materials. It’s being held as a pre-conference workshop at the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) conference, but attendees can register separately. This year the conference has a special stream on “digital” aspects of preserving and providing access to digital AV content. More info on the conference in general:
AMIA Cataloging & Metadata Workshop | October 7-8, 2014 | Savannah, Georgia
The 2014 edition of this bi-annual workshop includes new content and offers attendees—past and future alike—a workshop that emphasizes practical implementation through the use of hands-on exercises and addresses how the attendee can concretely integrate new models for description into their current workflows and environments.    The two-day program moves the attendee from concept to implementation starting with cataloging principles and metadata concepts that form the basis for describing and providing access to moving images in an evolving media and media technology environment. The workshop includes information about the role of cataloging for analog and digital asset management; the value, purpose and application of metadata and cataloging standards; management of resources through their life cycles; descriptive, structural, and administrative metadata (including rights and preservation metadata); and, data models and data mapping. Dynamic presentations encompass film, video, digital, and broadcast materials and include interactive exercises to put cataloging and metadata concepts directly into practice.
