Preservation of Aboriginal Language Audio-Visual Materials
Expression of Interest
The Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada is a national not for profit organization established to support preservation and access to Canada’s rich audio-visual heritage. The Trust, working in collaboration with Library and Archives Canada, is attempting to secure corporate support for a program to preserve and make accessible Canada’s aboriginal heritage languages in audiovisual formats (tapes, cassettes, broadcast tapes, films, videos).
The objective of this program, once funded, would be to assist the custodians or keepers of such heritage languages in ensuring that the useful life of these materials could be extended and moved to digital formats.
AV Preservation Trust and Library and Archives Canada seek to identify interested communities/organizations with Aboriginal audiovisual language materials as potential candidates for a pilot project.
If your organization or community is interested in participating, please submit your Expression of Interest by completing the brief questionnaire which will take just five minutes of your time. Version in .pdf is linked below.
Responses will be accepted by e-mail and fax or posted by the end of the business day, February 8, 2009
