Print Archive Network (PAN) & Looking to the Future of Shared Print Las Vegas Convention Center
N262
Description :

Building upon the experiences of current shared print initiatives, Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS) and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) are co-sponsoring a session exploring how the shared print landscape will likely develop in years to come. The session will act as both a call for future action for existing shared print initiatives and as a good starting place for those debating whether shared print is a good fit for their institution. There will be opportunities for attendees to share their own experiences of managing print collections. The session will follow a PAN forum update (9:00-9:45 am).

Managing Local and Community-produced Born-digital Audiovisual Content [$] Preconference/Institute Caesars Palace
Neopolitan II
Description :

Libraries increasingly need to manage local and community-produced media content in born-digital form. This ranges from oral histories, local television and radio programming, to student thesis projects, sporting events, and university public relations videos. It also may include community-related material that is not handed directly to a library, but is instead posted to media sharing sites such as YouTube. Often the amount of content is daunting, and the sense of urgency for preservation overwhelming.

Multiple speakers will provide examples of strategies for the ingest and management of important born-digital content, illustrating reasonably achievable processes for institutions with varying collections and resources. Topics will include offering advice to content contributors (on
preferred file formats, wrappers, and metadata), to file structures and metadata for maintaining a collection, to a variety of methods for providing access, to concerns about ensuring the longevity and integrity of these works.

Audience:
A key audience will be archives and special collections
librarians. It is expected that the workshop content will also speak to public librarians and school librarians who get local contributions (local history, videos of football games, etc.), and to managers of mass produced
collections (like many in the Video Round Table) who are occasionally called upon to manage locally produced content (like university PR spots).

Potential learning outcomes:

● Participants will be equipped with multiple strategies for management and preservation of born digital collections
● Participants will be able to identify preferred file formats for ingest which will provide standards for their respective collection
● Participants will have more understanding regarding issues of longevity, integrity and access of born-digital material which will inform the development of their own institutional strategies
● Participants will be presented with examples of publicly accessible born-digital collections that can serve as models to apply to their own collections.
● Participants will be presented with examples of how acquired born-digital materials can be incorporated into educational programs relevant to the participants’ institution.

Collaborative Preservation, the UC/PLCH model
Holly Prochaska
Beginning in January of 2012, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County (PLCH) and U. of Cincinnati Libraries (UCL) began a long-term collaboration to provide conservation and preservation treatments in an equally-managed, staffed, and equipped preservation lab situated on the U. of Cincinnati’s main campus.
Research on Mechanical System Shutdowns in Library Storage Areas
Jeremy Linden
Discuss methodologies and final results of a four-year experiment into the use of mechanical system shutdowns as a method to achieve significant reductions in energy use in library environments without compromising the preservation quality of collections environments. Research has shown that environmental conditions (temperature and relative humidity) are the most significant factors that impact the lifespan of cultural materials held by institutions. Mechanical systems in library environments are designed to run continuously in order to maintain the desired environmental conditions, resulting in high cost monetarily and in energy consumption. Altering these conditions through changes in HVAC operating schedules is a risk many institutions have been hesitant to take.

This four-year experiment was federally funded by the IMLS, and conducted by the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) at the Rochester Institute of Technology and their partner Peter Herzog, principal of Herzog/Wheeler & Associates. The experimental partners for the research were the Birmingham (AL) Public Library, Cornell, the New York Public Library, the UCLA, and Yale.

QC Tools and the AV Artifact Atlas: Open Source Tools and Resources for Quality Control in Digitization
Quality Control Tools for Video Preservation (QC Tools) is a two-year NEH-funded research and design project organized through the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) in partnership with independent consultants and contributors. The goal of the project is to develop a suite of open source software tools along with an online resource (AV Artifact Atlas wiki) to identify and enhance visual literacy of artifacts and errors prevalent in digitized analog video collections. The audience will be introduced to the QC Tools project as it exists today, highlighting how the software and online resource are useful for librarians beginning or in the midst of an a/v reformatting project. The project serves as a model for the advancement of community built and open educational resources, and attendees will have an opportunity to learn how they might contribute to its growth.

Kimberly Tarr, Head, Media Preservation Unit, NYU Libraries
Preserving Analog Video: Considerations for Outsourcing Projects to Vendors
Together, media degradation and system obsolescence place analog video collections at risk. Many libraries are interested in preserving their analog video materials but don't know where to begin. This presentation will provide the framework for organizations to initiate audiovisual reformatting projects, including: locating qualified vendors, how to request proposals and quotes, reviewing vendor bids, developing a statement of work, and managing projects. The talk will highlight the release of a new publication: Digitizing Video for Long-term Preservation: An RFP Guide and Template, which was developed by New York University's Division of Libraries and its academic partners and technical advisors. The publication is intended to take an institution step-by-step through the process of drafting a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the transfer of analog video -- specifically VHS -- to digital carriers for preservation.
