Spring 2007, Ben Moskowitz, Internship at Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, New York University, New York, NY

At the time of Ben Moskowitz’s internship, the Preservation Department was in development on a new surveying tool for audiovisual collections, ViPERS. Moskowitz contributed as part of the development team by researching playback issues and assessment practices for video and audio, and developing a methodology for random sampling of special collection materials. The random sampling was an essential part of the testing of the tool to see how it would perform with varied audiovisual materials.
