What Was Old Is New Again: Managing Streaming Archival Films on Multiple Hosted Platforms
MetadataShow full item record
Time-lapse film is an engaging media to help deliver messages about our natural and built environments. The F. Franklin Moon Library at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), has a rich collection of films by a faculty member, one of the pioneers of time-lapse photography, from the 1950s through the 1980s which were deteriorating. With no usable equipment available to view film, we needed to move to a digital platform to make these films accessible for future students, alumni, and researchers. This case study describes the multi-platform process that we used in the F. Franklin Moon Library to engage students in special collections and bring a valuable special collection to the public.
