If you missed the CARA workshop last week, you missed a good one! The workshop dealt with the archival management and preservation of film. It was not only a panel discussion by 3 experienced people in the field, but also a demonstration of film equipment, supplies and techniques...and a take away of great resources and links!
The speakers took turns and shared their knowledge and experience with their respective businesses and/or archives collections with much time for Q&A. The first to present was Erik Dix, audio and video archivist from the Archives of the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, IN, followed by Larry Urbanski from Urbanski Film in Orland Park, IL. The final speaker was our very own CARA member, Peter Gunther, archivist from the Robert M. Myers Archives of the Society of the Divine Word in Techny, IL.
