Online Buchpräsentation "Share that Knowledge!"

On November 22, at 4 p.m. (CET) the book Share That Knowledge! A Road Map for Sharing Knowledge across Generations of Audiovisual Archivists will be released.

The book is the result of a four-year research project into the methods and strategies of sharing knowledge within audiovisual archives, which was initiated by the Austrian Film Museum and the Slovenian Cinematheque, joined by colleagues from 11 other audiovisual archives, and supported by the Austrian government and FIAF. The goal of Share that Knowledge! was to find better strategies for sharing knowledge within our profession of audiovisual preservation. The final publication, a "road map," focuses on finding the right methods for transferring knowledge and skills that are at risk of being lost (organizational, technical, preservation, and collection knowledge), the situations and scenarios that need our attention when it comes to knowledge transfer (starting a job, leaving a job, during daily work, and when knowledge has left), as well as successful practices that we found in the examples of the colleagues we interviewed. The book will be available both as a free PDF and in a print version.

The online presentation will give an overview of the research that has been done, present the findings and the book, and give ideas about how you can use this book within your organization. Colleagues from the BFI, NFA and the Austrian Film Museum will tell about their experience with knowledge sharing practices. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions afterwards. Note that the event will be conducted in English.

You can register to attend the Zoom session hosted by FIAF here (please note that registrations will be done on a first come, first served basis as places are limited).
