Title: AVCC


Date & Time: January 27th, 2:00-2:45PM EST

Instructor: Rebecca Chandler


Topic:For organizations planning preservation work with their audiovisual materials but are confronted with little or no quantitative data about their collection, we invite you to join us for a look the inventory tool, AVCC. An open source web application and guideline, AVCC was developed to enable collaborative, efficient item-level cataloging of audiovisual collections. The application incorporates built-in reporting on collection statistics, digital storage calculations, shipping manifests, and other data critical to prioritizing and planning preservation work with audiovisual materials. AVCC establishes a minimal set of required and recommended fields that provide basic intellectual control and enables collection holders to quantify and plan a reformatting project.

Title: Fixity


Date & Time: February 8th, 2:00-2:45PM EST

Instructor: Amy Rudersdorf


Topic: How do you know if your digital files are corrupt, missing, moved or renamed? We invite you to join us to learn how FIXITY will allow you to monitor and report on file integrity and attendance. How does it work? FIXITY scans a folder or directory, creating a manifest of the files including their file paths and their checksums, against which regular comparative analyses are performed. FIXITY then emails a report to the user documenting flagged items along with the reason for a flag, such as that a file has been moved to a new location in the directory, has been edited, or has failed a checksum comparison for other reasons. When run regularly, FIXITY becomes a powerful tool for monitoring digital files in almost any storage location. Download and find out more about Fixity at https://www.avpreserve.com/tools/fixity/
