Fast-Forward -- The Future of Audio Visual Materials

 Registration is closed for this event

Do you have film? Video tapes? Cassettes? Records? Reel to Reel Tape? 8-Tracks? How is your institution working with these collections?

America is at risk for losing our recorded audio and visual heritage. As these media age, not only is there deterioration to the materials themselves but the machines that are used to play this media are rapidly becoming obsolete. Even born digital collections are facing issues dealing with the migration from original to new format.

The Fast Forward conference aims to bring together a group of speakers who have practical experience working with these types of collections to provide a wide view of the issues surrounding audio and visual collections. For these collections, preservation and access is an immediate concern and it is important for institutions to develop a strategy of how to deal with these collections as technology moves forward – fast!
