A202 - Digitizing & Archiving

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Susie Kopecky, Librarian, Allan Hancock College
John Sarnowski, Director, ResCarta Foundation

Kopecky describes one college library’s efforts to begin digitizing a family estate archive that was gifted to the college from its namesake family. Staff began from scratch to learn about how to best organize and begin the process of converting to digital. Along the way, they researched best practices and sought local and far-away partners. The process is ongoing, but they want to share their experiences, learnings and excitement for where it will go. In the second presentation, Sarnowski agrees that pushing local videos to YouTube is great for discovery and display, but what are you doing to maintain them over time? He discusses archiving for YouTubers and looks into multimedia formats, metadata and preservation tips. He shares tips, knowledge, and software to keep important materials properly archived.
