For this year's pre-conference workshop, the ARSC Education & Training Committee and Technical Committee present a Media Preservation Boot Camp, May 10-11.

Learn media preservation basics with workshops led by experts on a variety of topics at the IU Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative and Memnon Archiving Services joint digitization facility. Participants will be able to take a multitude of mini-workshops over the course of two days.

Choose among workshops such as:

  • Basics of tape and disc digitization 
  • Basics of video formats and digitization 
  • Preparing items for digitization 
  • Metadata for media preservation 
  • Creating media digitization facilities 
  • Quality control and quality assurance 
  • Care and maintenance of physical media 
  • Access and long-term storage systems 
  • Disaster planning and recovery 
  • Digital preservation workflows 
  • Copyright and legal issues 
  • and others.


The curriculum of the Media Preservation Boot Camp is based on topics covered in the "ARSC Guide to Audio Preservation," created by ARSC members in collaboration with the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) and published in May 2015. Participants are encouraged to obtain and read a copy of the Guide in advance of the workshop. The Guide is available for download as a free PDF, or for purchase in printed form, from CLIR: http://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub164

The Media Preservation Boot Camp is approved for 5 Archival Recertification Credits through the Academy of Certified Archivists. Please contact the Academy for more information.

This two-day workshop is limited to 50 people. A separate registration fee applies for the workshop. Please register by April 18 to receive the early registration discounted price.

A box lunch each midday and transportation to and from the conference hotel (IU Memorial Union) will be provided for registered workshop participants.
