Event description

Description

Damage and disruption for archival moving image and video materials can arise from biological, chemical, and mechanical damages to these objects. These serious problems are often compounded by the fact that many students and archivists don’t have the necessary hands-on experience with media materials. Many have little knowledge of how to recognize the different types of deterioration or how to handle them. It can be incredibly intimidating to deal with issues like mold or vinegar syndrome without much information, other than recognizing they are serious issues. This hands-on workshop aims to empower students and archivists to handle and assess these materials with confidence and be able to work out a plan to triage the damage. The workshop will be led by Media Commons Assistant Media Archivists, Rachel E. Beattie and Christina Stewart. This two-hour session will provide short lectures on film and video media and participants will have hands-on access to the materials. They will be shown how to handle and identify the many damages that can occur. Solutions and methods for repairing the affected materials will also be discussed.
