Audiovisual Archiving: Philosophy and Principles
“Philosophy”, according to the Concise Oxford Dictionary, is “the love of wisdom or knowledge, especially that which deals with ultimate reality, or with the most general causes and principles of things”. Like other aspects of collecting and preserving the memory of humanity, audiovisual archiving has at its base certain “general causes and principles”. To place them open to scrutiny and general recognition, they need to be conveniently codified.
Addressing this need was the motivation for the first edition of this publication in 1998. This third edition provides the rationale and theoretical basis of audiovisual archiving, updated to reflect the contemporary realities faced by practitioners in the field.
