Audiovisual archiving: philosophy and principles in Portuguese


Published under UNESCO’s Memory of the World programme, this third edition of Audiovisual Archiving: Philosophy and Principle provides the rationale and theoretical basis of audiovisual archiving and has been updated to reflect the contemporary realities faced by practitioners in the field.

Audiovisual archiving is a widely recognized field among memory institutions, industries and academia, and has a sound range of policies governing collection development, preservation and access. However, the increasing volume of audiovisual documents and the rapid obsolescence of the technologies used to create them pose immense challenges for audiovisual archives and archivists. The third edition of Audiovisual Archiving speaks to these challenges and examines questions raised by the migration of image and sound from analogue to digital and broader concepts of preservation and access.
