    LIS 668: Projects in Moving Image and Sound Archiving - FROM FILM, VIDEO, TO BORN DIGITAL, MOVING IMAGE AND SOUND RECORDINGS HAVE COMPELLED USERS SINCE THEIR ADVENT IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY. TODAY, MANY ARCHIVES HOUSED AT UNIVERSITIES OR NON PROFIT INSTITUTIONS ACT TO PRESERVE THE MOVING IMAGE RECORD. HOWEVER, THE FRAGILITY OF THIS MEDIUM (PARTICULARLY THE MAGNETIC MEDIUM THAT HOLD SOUND AND VIDEO), COMBINED WITH THE PRESERVATION NEEDS OF TODAY'S BORN DIGITAL WORKS (SUCH AS INDEPENDENT DOCUMENTARIES), ARE QUESTIONING OUR COLLECTIVE ABILITY TO PRESERVE THIS WORK. THIS CLASS WILL WORK TO COMBAT THIS .TREND BY FOCUSING ON THE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL ASPECTS RELATED TO ARCHIVING MOVING IMAGE AND SOUND RECORDING, WITH A PARTICULAR FOCUS ON DIGITIZATION AND BORN-DIGITAL ASSETS.
    LIS 694: Film and Media Collections - The course will provide an introduction to building and maintaining collections and services related to visual media, primarily moving images, sound and ephemera. Discussions will survey key components such as the history of film and media in library collections, collection development, access, equipment, copyright, emerging technologies and management of non-print formats.

    INF2311h: Managing AudioVisual Material - The purpose and content of this course is to provide an introduction to the world of audiovisual documents (photographs, sound recordings, moving images). This includes their history, physical makeup, stages of creation, appraisal, acquisition, arrangement and description and preservation. As well there will be a brief introduction to copyright as well as the licensing and distribution ramifications of using, exhibiting, and re-purposing AV documents. By focusing on the above knowledge set, the course will reveal how important they are in research terms both as an adjunct to other types of documents and in their own right. This exposure will make it evident that audiovisual documents deserve to be given the fullest consideration in archival and library management decision-making, as much as any other types of documents.
