AudioVisual Preservation Solutions will again be conducting preservation and metadata themed workshops as part of the METRO’s Documentary Heritage Program service offerings. The first day-long class will be Processing Audio and Video Collections on Friday, April 20th. The instructors will include AVPS Senior Consultant Joshua Ranger and Consultant Marian Clarke.
Three more workshops will be offered over the spring and summer, including Using Metadata for Audiovisual Collection Management, Managing File-based Collection for Smaller Institutions, and another session on Processing Audio and Video Collections. This year, two of the classes will be held in Westchester County in order to provide better service to the full METRO membership area. Other instructors will include AVPS Senior Consultant Kara Van Malssen and Consultant Peter Oleksik. Dates and locations to be announced soon. And many thanks to METRO and the New York State Archives for subsidizing these offerings.
