Digital Audiovisual Preservation in Communities of Practice

4 Dec 2013
Paris, France

As part of the Presto4U project, PrestoCentre has established a series of nine Communities of Practice in the principal sub-sectors of audiovisual media preservation, bringing together groups of peers in the archival world who share interests and problems specific to the nature of the audiovisual objects they keep.
