AV Archives Night SAA 2015 Last Call

By: Joshua Ranger
June 24, 2015

AVPreserve is putting out one more call for submissions for our AV Archives Night to take place at the SAA 2015 conference in Cleveland, Ohio. AV Archives Night is a celebration of archives and audiovisual collections regionally located near the conference, as well as the a promotion of the work that archivists are doing to preserve our AV heritage. AV Archives Night 2015 will take place on Wednesday August 19th at a loft on High Avenue in Cleveland, just blocks away from the conference site. This is a free event open to any conference attendee or other student/professional in the area, and refreshments will be provided.

We are looking for audio or video content from collections in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Western Pennsylvania, and now Indiana and Michigan! Content specifically related to the region is preferred, but other material will be accepted.

Submissions must be available in a digital format that is suitable for projection or playback over a sound system. Digitized or born digital content is accepted. A low resolution version is sufficient for submission in order to review and plan the programming. Content should be a maximum of about 7 minutes. Multiple submissions are acceptable, but the grand total of running time should be a maximum of about 7 minutes. Submissions should include your name, the name of your institution as it should be printed in the program, the title of the piece, the creator, the year of the piece, the original format, and a short description if available.

The contributing archive must have the rights to present the material and is responsible for confirming those rights. AVPreserve will delete or return all copies of materials provided per the request of the contributing archive. AVPreserve will claim no rights or ownership over any material or use it for any purposes outside of projection at this one time event. This will be a free event, and one does not need to be registered for SAA to attend.

***Though we are not an official SAA program, AV Archives Night will adhere to the SAA Code of Conduct and the organizers will address any issues and support moving issues through official SAA channels.

Contact Josh Ranger at josh[at]avpreserve[dot]com with any questions and to submit something for the event. We’re looking forward to a great conference!
