The Community Archiving Workshop, a project of the Association of Moving Image Archivists, will offer a series of regionally-based workshops to address the problem of obsolescence in audiovisual collections. Regional archivists and librarians will receive training by established audiovisual archivists in the essentials of care and preservation for AV collections, as well as hands-on collection processing and identification workshops. Each participating institution will also be aided in the creation of a preservation plan, as well as the digitization of select high-priority content. The workshop training curriculum and toolkit will be made freely available, enabling participating archivists and librarians to pass on their training within their community.
