Wednesday, March 21, 2018 -
1:30pm to 3:00pm

The BLC is pleased to announce the second webinar in our two-part webinar series on the the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB). The AAPB is a collaboration between the Library of Congress and the WGBH Educational Foundation to preserve at-risk public media and provide a central web portal for access to unique programming. The entire collection is available on location at the Library of Congress and WGBH, and almost 30,000 programs are available online at 

Part II - Wednesday, March 21, 1:30-3:00PM

In this webinar, panelists will explore specific use cases for librarians and researchers in accessing and making use of the AAPB collection. This will include a general overview of how scholars and researchers are seeking to use digital AV collections, a brief recap of how AAPB provides access to its collection to researchers and the general public, incorporating AAPB into subject-specific LibGuides, use of audiovisual collections in traditional historical research and in academic coursework, and examples of how AAPBmetadata and transcripts can be used in digital humanities research and data mining. 


Please join us for one or both webinars, presented using GoTo Webinar. Please contact Susan Stearns or Jessica Hardin if you have any questions. We recommend using a headset for the audio if possible. Or, feel free to join with other colleagues at your institution and participate as a group.  We will be recording the presentation and archiving it on the BLC website in the "Member Events" section should you be unable to attend in person.
