Let’s face it, taking care of audiovisual materials can be intimidating. It requires specialized expertise, antiquated equipment, and lots of hard-to-come-by funding. But a little knowledge goes a long way. This workshop will demystify the reels and cassettes sitting on shelves and tucked away in boxes. Participants will learn about AV formats, how to create access to materials using simple DIY techniques and will walk away from the workshop armed with resources, information, and techniques to help them care for their audiovisual collections.
