AVPS Invited To Join The Advisory Board For The Recently Launched NYU Preservation Department Assessment Project Funded By The Mellon Foundation

August 2, 2006

AVPS was asked to join the advisory board for the NYU Preservation Department Assessment Project due to our experience with assessing dynamic objects (audiovisual media and content) and for our perspective on the landscape of current assessment projects and technologies.

The project titled “Developing Principles and Methodologies for Moving Image and Audio Preservation in Research Libraries” will conduct research to develop new surveying methodologies for video and audio collections.

Results will ultimately aid in the development of best practices for assessment and preservation planning. We are proud to serve on the advisory board and look forward to working with the excellent team assembled to take on the project.
