Organizations and communities around the world contain significant audiovisual collections documenting their political and cultural landscapes. Public media stations in New Mexico and Kansas, along with the collaboration of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting have developed new, innovative models for statewide preservation consortia projects, together securing nearly $1,000,000 in funding from the Council on Library and Information Resources to realize them. In this panel discussion, representatives from New Mexico PBS, KMUW Wichita, the Library of Congress, WGBH and CLIR will present on successful models for highly impactful statewide digitization projects. By taking a holistic approach to digitization, preservation, public access and subsequent use, and by harnessing the expertise of AV archivists, content producers, historians, and the communities their collections document, these projects will facilitate ‘knowledge of scale’ as well as economies of scale, raising the threshold for impact while saving in costs gained through increased participation and scope.
