Digitizing Crow Oral History: Trials, Tribulations, and Successes
In this presentation, Jon Ille, Archivist, Little Big Horn College; Danetta Holds, Archives Audiovisual Technician, Little Big Horn College; and Tim Bernardis, Librarian, Little Big Horn College, discuss how the Little Big Horn College Archives digitized outdated VHS, audio cassettes, reel to reel, and Mini DV tapes over a four year period. A range of issues were encountered that led to a variety of emotions on the journey to place these irreplaceable items. Presenters share their digitization process, including lessons learned, and how they ultimately placed the materials online to provide greater access. This session was part of the ATALM annual conference held in Temecula, California, on October 8-10, 2019.
