(via Elizabeth Clarage,

Space remains for the Audiovisual Preservation Workshop on Monday, April 18, 2016. Until March 28th, registration is limited to two people per CARLI institution. If space remains after March 28th, registration will be open to all interested CARLI members. Registration will close on Friday, April 1st, at noon.

Media and audiovisual items pose many challenges for libraries and archives around the world. A lack of basic training and skills for working with these collections often puts the items at risk.

The CARLI Preservation Committee invites you to a full day workshop focused specifically on audiovisual preservation on April 18, 2016, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. Through lecture, demonstration, and hands-on activities, participants will learn about the issues and concepts involved in A/V preservation. Participants will gain unique insight and experience with identification, care, handling, and condition assessment of media materials. An introduction into the how’s and why’s of media digitization and the basics of physical repair and cleaning of collection assets will be covered.

The instructor for the day will be Joshua Harris, Media Preservation Coordinator at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. No experience with media items is required. Participants will leave with core knowledge that will empower them to dig into their media and audiovisual collections!
Full information and registration is on the CARLI website. If you have any questions, please contact CARLI Support at
