Stories from the Field: Electronic Media Preservation at The Strong Museum of Play

Join Julia Novakovic and Beth Merkle from the Strong Museum of Play as they discuss steps that smaller institutions can take to begin basic digital preservation on their electronic media. The Strong was awarded RRLC Technology grants for “Preserving Endangered Media Pilot Project,” which focused on floppy disks, in 2017 and then “Preservation of Endangered Media: U-matic Tape Pilot Project” in 2018. Drawing from lessons learned during these projects, this webinar will cover topics such as preservation tactics for electronic media formats on hardware and accessioning born-digital collections from donors via file transfers, as well as an overview of the helpful resources and tools used at the Strong to ensure access to digital files for the next generation. 

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
