Do you have video cassette tapes, audio cassette tapes, 16-milimeter films that all need to be cataloged, housed and given access? Do you wish you could take a class at IMAP to get a better understanding on dealing with this materials? These are only a few examples of the many ways NEA can help fund your professional development in audio/visual media.
