Under the supervision of the Archivist, the Project Archivist will manage a grant-supported project that focuses on preserving at-risk audio-visual materials through digitization. This will include planning and managing the digitization of those materials by others, the implementation of a digital asset management system (DAM) for the archives, and the transfer of digital media files to the DAM. All project materials will be catalogued into the archives’ existing ArchivesSpace database and records will be linked with the DAM. Planning for sustainable solutions for the management and preservation of digital files, ensuring access to these resources, and documentation of the project itself, are critical components of this work.
