Sailing the Ship: Supporting and Managing Change at Large Institutions
For many large cultural organizations there is a significant gap between the institutional importance of audiovisual materials and the ability for large institutional systems to effectively support their reformatting, research, and delivery. New systems, technologies and procedures for handling audiovisual materials offer the opportunity for significant improvement in managing this complex content, but the bigger the institution the more complicated it becomes to implement necessary change. This proposed panel will focus on the challenges of introducing large-scale audiovisual preservation initiatives into existing systems, including case studies from UNC’s Southern Folklife Collection, the Smithsonian Institution, and WGBH. Panelists will present recommendations, lessons learned, and effective solutions employed in their own projects, with an eye toward global changes to collections-management with a variety of institutions.
Chair and Speakers: Erica Titkemeyer, UNC-CH; Crystal Sanchez, Smithsonian Institution; Rebecca Fraimow, NDSR Boston/WGBH
