PrestoSpace - Digital Preservation of audio/visual material

PrestoSpace (http://www.prestospace.org/project/index.en.html) is an EU project which aims to enable any European archive owner, from small collections to the largest, to manage an autonomous and realistic patrimonial policy, including preservation and exploitation of digital assets, in order to bring together industry, research institutes and stakeholders at European level to provide products and services for bringing effective automated preservation and access to Europe’s diverse audiovisual collections.

The outcome of the project is "Digital Preservation of audio/visual material", a website for archive owners, academics and the public alike, which provides a first point-of-call for information on the migration and digital preservation of audio/visual works. The site is a repository of the information and experience gained in the PrestoSpace project. You can find information ranging from the tutorial to the academic on planning and executing a digital preservation project and the technologies and processes involved. You will also find training videos, management tools and links to online resources and events in the field of digital preservation.

Center for Digital Storytelling - listen deeply, tell stories

"The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling. We assist people of all ages in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.

Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey. But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing."
