Archives of all sizes have audiovisual materials in their holdings. Digitization is the first hurdle, but once a/v materials have been reformatted, archivists still face the daunting task of providing researchers with access to these valuable research materials.

This session will be a hybrid format where presenters will discuss projects utilizing innovative practices to provide online access to their audiovisual collections, despite challenges such as technology, resource availability, staffing, or rights.

Melissa Hernandez-Duran of the Bentley Historical Library will discuss the use of a non-CMS media platform to provide access to archival sound recordings according to rights determinations. Amy Moorman from the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting will talk about an NEH funded grant project to create an Online Media Library for their media collections, utilizing a CMS to attach audio and video access files. Matthew Patulski of Poplar Media will discuss a project to build an online archive for organizing media to document an 8-year river restoration project in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Derek Long of the Marr Sound Archives will discuss incorporating transcriptions into audio records to meet ADA compliance. Jon Cameron from Indiana University Libraries will talk about the work of providing access to the large volume of material digitized through IU’s Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative project.

Following those presentations, Lynn Smith of the Hoover Presidential Library will moderate a forum discussion between the panelists and the audience to discuss larger topics such as metadata standards, rights review, streaming files, web platforms, and more.
