Conference dates: October 26th-28th, 2021
Quartex is delighted to announce that we will be presenting live at Internet Librarian 2021, which takes place on October 26-28 at Monterey, CA (subject to further COVID-19 restrictions, in which case the conference will be virtual.)
Katie Gambone will lead a discussion with Alex Cherian, Television Archivist at Bay Area TV Archive, on Wednesday, October 27 at 3.15pm PT, focusing on the hosting and accessibility concerns facing repositories and institutions with large A/V collections and revealing how Quartex's A/V Pilot Project is working to resolve these issues and shine a long overdue light on these often untapped resources.
A/V Collections: Community Partnership & Platform Development
Audio visual collections represent a number of unique challenges for archivists who want to make these assets available and accessible for all researchers. Costs for hosting this content, providing accurate transcripts and closed captioning, embedding, security, and access controls are just a few of the considerations a repository must navigate.
