Description

Mack’s talk outlined the challenges encountered and strategies used in cataloging a collection of digitized local news video clips. The collection consists of “cuts and outs” (unused) video clips, with minimal accession data, and little to no information connecting the clips to the stories from which they were cut. Technology and collaboration played a large role in overcoming many of the challenges in cataloging these digitized files, allowing the cataloger to easily pause the playback and take screen shots to better analyze the content and consult colleagues and outside resources.
