MOVING IMAGE & RECORDED SOUND ROUNDTABLE (MIRS)

The Roundtable will serve as an advocate for those individuals and organizations that have audiovisual collections and will engage in activities that advance knowledge, communication, and archival professionalism in these areas.
- Raise awareness of the unique archival challenges of time-based media

- Create resources and provide guidance for those working with moving image and recorded sound collections
- Organize and participate in activities that address audiovisual issues. These may include:

- Fostering communication with other moving image and recorded sound professional organizations and groups
- Planning and implementing workshops that focus on specific aspects of audiovisual materials such as digitization, managing born-digital files, copyright, and preservation
