Workshop: Caring for Audiovisual Collections

Audiovisual collections, such as home movies, oral histories, and television and radio broadcasts, bring the past to life using sound and moving images. However, AV material also present unique challenges to individuals, families, and organizations trying to care for them.

This one-day workshop, presented in conjunction with the Northeast Document Conservation Center, provides participants with an overview of the variety of AV materials stored in organizations and family collections and introduces strategies for their care and digitization. Space is limited, and registration is required. The cost for this workshop is $75 for members and $100 for nonmembers. To register, visit Eventbrite.com, mail the registration form with payment, or call Member and Visitor Services Coordinator Wendy Olcott at 603-856-0621.
