Access Committee

Chairs: Kathy Christensen and Laura Treat

The Access Committee supports moving image archivists to provide all reasonable and responsible forms of access to their collections. The Access Committee coordinates information and professional activities, establishes guidelines and standards, and acts in an advocacy role relating to issues to access. The Access Committee works with other committees and working groups of AMIA to accomplish this goal.

Vision Statement

We believe that access to collections is central to the mission of moving image archivists. We believe that all archivists, and their constituents, act together to develop flexible and responsible strategies regarding access.
