AVPreserve Welcomes Alex Duryee

May 24, 2013

AVPreserve is pleased to welcome Alex Duryee to our team. Alex is a 2012 MLIS graduate from Rutgers University with a specialization in Digital Libraries and comes to us from Rhizome where he worked on the preservation of net- and disc-based artworks. Experienced in web archiving, data preservation, and the migration of content from optical and magnetic digital storage, Alex is working on a number of digital preservation projects with us. These range from developing new tools and software for support of integrity assurance for digital repositories and audio transfers (extending on our work with BWF MetaEdit and Digital Audio Interstitial Errors, to analysis and normalization of a dataset consisting of 2.5 million records. The work he is doing is a part of our growing focus on developing tools and support for managing metadata and digital files in a preservation environment. We’re excited to add this to our continuing services involving physical collections and excited to have Alex on board!
