Training for Audiovisual Preservation in Europe (TAPE)
regional training course on preservation and digitisation of audio
and video collections
Vienna, Austria
12-16 November 2007

TAPE will organize a 5 days' regional training course on
preservation and digitisation of audio and video collections. The
programme has been developed on the basis of experiences made in
former TAPE training courses, and is specifically adapted for small
audiovisual and mixed media research collections.

The course will be jointly organised by the Phonogrammarchiv of the
Austrian Academy of Sciences, partner in project TAPE, and by the
Austrian Mediathek.

Target group:

The course will be aimed at those planning, or already actively
involved in preservation /digitisation projects of their audio and
video collections. The courses will survey technical and ethical
principles of audio and video preservation as well as practical
work.

Topics and features: Tutorials will include audio and video carrier
technology, their components and vulnerability, handling and
storage; maintenance of equipment, format obsolescence, strategy and
ethical principles of long-term preservation; analogue-to
digital-transfer and digital repositories, focussing on small scale
- low cost solutions. Emphasis will also be put on collection
assessment and planning of projects for preservation.

The registration fee is 600 Euros. Participants from institutions
that are TAPE partners or from Academies of Sciences having
cooperation agreements with the Austrian Academy of Sciences will
pay 500 Euros. For the latter, a limited number of grants to cover
accommodation and subsistence in Vienna is available upon special
application. The fee includes coffees, teas, lunches, and a course
pack with reading materials.

Participants should make their own travel and accommodation
arrangements. The local organisers, however, will assist to find
modestly priced hotel accommodation, if requested.

Registration forms must be received by 28 September, 2007.
