4,000 assets created by 230 different television and radio stations over a seventy-year period, stored on twenty-five different media formats, digitized and made accessible through a three-institution partnership during a pandemic. What could possibly go wrong? Four participants in this collaborative effort will discuss their contributions to the project, including innovative tools, evolving procedures, and collaborative strategies. They will also speak to the policies and tactics that have allowed the project to remain on track during the pandemic. Key topics include obtaining permissions from rights holders; creating and correcting speech-to-text transcripts, managing a remote workforce; conducting research during Covid-19 and curating an online exhibit; and digital asset management and quality control. Session sponsored by the News/TV/Docs committee.
