Digital Library Development Team Leader
New York University
Digital libraries are beginning to move beyond a focus on text and still image materials and are increasingly creating, storing, managing and delivering audio and video resources. As a community we have developed general principles and some best practices regarding the creation of “preservable” digital text and still images, but we have only recently begun to test some of those decisions with audio and video resources.
This briefing will provide basic background on digital video and then discuss NYU’s experience in attempting to create “preservation-worthy” digital video resources, including an examination of some of the potential costs.
