Get Involved

***With hopeful optimism, the deadline to respond to the "Saving Recorded
History" needs assessment has been extended until *June 1, 2020*.  We
appreciate the many collecting institutions that have already responded,
but realize some may need access to collections in order to complete the
quick survey. The situation will be reassessed as time goes on to determine
if further extensions are needed. In the interim, please know we are
thinking of you and hoping you are well during these unprecented times.***
Audiovisual (AV) materials are essential to preserving cultural heritage,
yet many are endangered and some have been lost forever. To help Native
communities provide better care for AV collections, the National Endowment
for the Humanities is supporting a two-year project to study the needs of
collecting institutions holding Native audiovisual materials, to develop
regional training hubs, and to provide robust training in the care and
management of audiovisual collections.

If you hold audiovisual collections with Native content, there are three
ways to get involved with this groundbreaking project:

   1. Help develop a master plan to guide future programs and establish
   funding priorities by responding to the Saving Recorded History: A Needs
   Assessment Survey of Native Audiovisual Collections
   . The survey will take about 25 minutes to complete. Responses should be
   received by *June 1, 2020*.
   2. Serve as a *Regional Community Archiving Workshop Host Organization*
   and receive funding, training, equipment, and assistance with processing
   collections while also helping neighboring tribes. Five regional workshop
   hosts in Hawaii, Alaska, and the continental USA will be selected.
   to be a Regional Workshop Hos
   3. Apply to serve as a *Community Partner* at the "Audiovisual
   Collections Care and Management Workshop" scheduled for November 30 in
   Washington, DC. One or more Native organizations with unprocessed
   audiovisual collections will be selected. Community Partners bring
   unprocessed audiovisual collections to the workshop where they are assessed
   and processed by workshop participants under professional supervision.
   Apply to be a Community Partner at the  *Audiovisual Collections Care
   and Management Workshop

We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to hearing from

*Susan Feller*, President & CEO
*Moriah Ulinskas,* Audiovisual Archivist/Project Director

This project is funded by the *National Endowment for the Humanities* and
directed by the *Community Archiving Workshop*, a project of the *Association
of Moving Image Archivists*.  Project support is provided by the*
Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums.*
