Seth Anderson, Internship at American Museum of Natural History, Fall 2011

As an audiovisual intern at the American Museum of Natural History, I spent the semester planning and implementing a digitization project for the museum’s Research Library. In the 1980s, the library made U-matic video copies of its large moving image collection. With the cooperation of the museum’s Science Bulletins department, these tapes will be transferred to digital formats early next year. This will allow the library to host access files through its online catalog and bring greater awareness to the valuable collection. In addition to planning the project with library administration and the Science Bulletins department, I worked with the library to establish preservation and metadata policies for the incoming digital collection.
