UIUC Library Launches Audiovisual Self-Assessment Program

The AvSAP project started in 2007 and is now available online at the AvSAP website. From their recent announcement,

AvSAP is free and accessible to the public, providing a series of questions designed to collet data about collections and assess the conditions of audiovisual items. Users may download AvSAP and host it on their own SQL server, or access it on the web. The goal of this assessment tool is to help collections managers develop a prioritized preservation plan for their audiovisual materials, including, but not limited to audio recordings, films, and videotapes, and to educate individuals on extending the lives of their collections with the resources at hand.”

UIUC worked with several organizations, and this project was funded in part by an IMLS National Leadership Grant.
