Library Hosts Film Preservation Workshop in Portland Oct. 27
The University of Oregon Libraries will host a one-day workshop in basic film preservation on Sat., Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the UO Portland’s White Stag Block, 70 NW Couch St. The workshop is designed for people working in archives, historical societies, libraries, and other institutions that have film collections but no one with expertise to handle it properly.
Two experienced moving-image archivists will lead the workshop. Hannah Palin, film archive specialist, and Nicolette Bromberg, visual materials curator, from the University of Washington Libraries’ Special Collections will cover how to handle, assess, document, and store archival film, as well as how to set up a low-cost film preservation program. Attendance is limited to 15 participants. The workshop is free, but registration is required. Complete information and a workshop registration form are available at https://libweb.uoregon.edu/film_workshop.html.
