The Media Preservation Unit of the Barbara Goldsmith Preservation and Conservation Department at Bobst Library works to preserve the library’s A/V materials, particularly those from Fales and the Tamiment/Wagner Archive. I worked in the Media Lab for ten weeks throughout the Fall 2010 semester. During my time there, I had the opportunity to work with film and video elements, use a wide range of the lab’s equipment and learn from Preservation Specialists Alice Moscoso and Ben Moskowitz. I worked on several 16mm film collections that needed to be inspected, rehoused, releadered and entered into the library-wide Moving Image Database. These collections often included various elements such as positive prints, internegatives, camera originals, work prints and magnetic soundtracks. In the video lab I inspected tapes to learn more about their content, and transferred U-matic tapes to DVD and Digibeta. Interning at Bobst gave me the chance to familiarize myself with different media, equipment and terminology in an environment that is understanding of a MIAP student’s needs.
