- Dec 1 Use it or Lose It: Local Television Collections in Action
In these lightning talks, local television archivists from across the United States will advocate for new and expanded uses of local television collections by user groups ranging from local historians and podcasters to K-12 educators, computer scientists, and sports enthusiasts. Part show-and-tell and part call-to-action, this session will address a major challenge to local television preservation wherein the ability to attract internal support and funding is predicated on proof of ƒ??use’ and the ability to engage desired users is predicated on obtaining support and funding for digitization and access. Each speaker will share an example of how their local TV collections have been used and engage the audience with questions about engagement and outreach. The session will further the News/Documentary/Television Committee’s goals of promoting and documenting local television use by making publicly available on the committee’s webpage, the panelist examples and those generated by audience engagement throughout the conference.
