"The U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities is proud to present “NEH and the Preservation and Access of Audiovisual Cultural Heritage,” an online video by Program Officers Joshua Sternfeld and Jesse Johnston: http://www.neh.gov/divisions/preservation/featured-project/neh-and-the-preservation-and-access-audiovisual-cultural-her. ;

The three-part video—which you may watch in full or in separate parts (links below)--covers NEH’s ongoing commitment to preserve audiovisual cultural heritage.  Part I provides an argument for the significance of a/v collections as an essential media for understanding the history of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.  Part II summarizes the full range of grant programming for a/v collections provided by NEH’s Division of Preservation and Access that covers areas in research and development, education and training, assessment for smaller institutions, reformatting, cataloging, and stabilization through sustainable preventive conservation.  Finally, Part III describes NEH’s strategic planning to address the current crisis in a/v preservation and access.

We invite you to share the video or its constituent parts widely not just with fellow audiovisual archivists, librarians, and engineers, but administrators, scholars, and anyone else who may be interested to learn more about moving image and sound collections. 

We also invite your feedback on how NEH may continue to support the field going forward.  Your participation, expressed in grant proposals and correspondence, are what fuel our programming and outreach.

As always, program officers are available to discuss project ideas, read drafts for many of our grant programs, and provide feedback.  Questions may be submitted to Josh Sternfeld (jsternfeld@neh.gov) or Jesse Johnston (jjohnston@neh.gov).  You may learn more about our grant programming at http://www.neh.gov/divisions/preservation. ; You can also follow us on Twitter, @NEH_PresAccess for future news and announcements on this fast-moving front.

 

NEH is an independent grant-making agency of the United States government dedicated to supporting research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities.

UTS Shapeshifters event on Creative Futures - by Mal Booth

"[...] the slides I used for a UTS Shapeshifters event on Creative Futures. I was talking about the future of academic libraries, particularly our own and our role in a creative digital future. 
I should explain more about the 3rd slide. The things listed on that slide are often forgotten or discounted in the blind pursuit of efficiency or traditional KPIs. For libraries, these things (i.e. delight, surprise, engagement, serendipity and curiosity) are at least as important and should not be forgotten, dismissed or left until later."

Karen du Toit's insight:

A creative digital future for academic libraries!
