Welcome to the American Archive of Public Broadcasting Wiki!


The American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) MediaWiki was created in 2017 through the AAPB National Digital Stewardship Residency Project (NDSR), funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The wiki constitutes the final project of the AAPB NDSR residents, whose residencies took place between May 2016 and June 2017. Here, the residents have highlighted their their collaboration and shared their resources, workflows, and documents used for managing audiovisual assets in all their possible formats and environments.

Sharing documentation, resources, and knowledge is an essential part of the audiovisual archiving field. Models of practice and documentation of existing workflows can be a powerful tool for establishing or improving archival initiatives. The AAPB hopes that this wiki will be an evolving resource, driven by the audiovisual archiving and public broadcasting communities.

American Archive of Public Broadcasting - National Digital Stewardship Residency

The mission of the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) is to build a dedicated community of professionals who will advance our nation’s capabilities in managing, preserving, and making accessible the digital record of human achievement.

Like the other NDSR programs, the AAPB NDSR was built around a cohort model and featured a preliminary immersion course, an ongoing mentorship program, and frequent educational opportunities throughout the residency. However, rather than focusing on one geographic urban area, the AAPB NDSR was the first residency to place residents at geographically distributed locations around the United States, encouraging the residents to use virtual networking to benefit individual projects and support the cohort.

Unlike previous residencies, the AAPB NDSR also focused specifically on the unique challenges of preserving of digital audiovisual materials. This allowed residents to gain hands-on professional experience with this highly complex and high-risk area of content, which very few library and information science Master’s programs focus on in any detail. It also addressed the lack of staffing of professional archivists at public television and radio organizations around the country. By providing skilled young professionals to work with the organizations in developing digital preservation plans for their material, the AAPB NDSR program created a cohort of skilled professionals in the field of digital audiovisual preservation, and played a key role in the ongoing preservation of public media content.

The AAPB hopes that this wiki will be an evolving resource, driven by the moving image archiving and public broadcasting communities. If you would like to edit an existing article, or add an article of your own, please request an account.
