Digitization of an historical 16mm film of the re-opening of an excavation site at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles is one of many examples of content items driving the importance and visibility of the library and archives for a museum’s digital presence. This is being done through the California Audio Visual Preservation Project, which is focused on capturing, preserving, and making accessible the fast deteriorating audiovisual resources in research institutions’ collections. With funding from a number of sources, including IMLS and the California State Library, a variety of research institutions in academia, museums, and archives are participating in this project. Hear the strategies, challenges, and successes as the project pushes for the final product being online in the Internet Archive.
