New Delhi (19 February) -- The International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) has announced the holding of course "SOIMA 2009: Safeguarding Sound and Image Collections" on 17 November to 11 December 2009 at New Delhi, India with study visits to other Indian cities. Application deadline is 20 April 2009.

SOIMA 2009 is jointly organized by ICCROM with National Research Laboratory for Conservation of Cultural Property (NRLC) of India, in cooperation with American Institute of Indian Studies, India International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA), Centre de Recherche sur la Conservation des Collections (CRCC) of France, Masters Degree Program in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation of New York University, and Thomson Foundation of Film and TV Heritage of France.

The course will provide an overview of issues related to the preservation and access of sound and image materials e.g., photographs, films, video and audiotapes, and digital materials. It will discuss the value, meaning, selection and use of sound and image collections in various institutional contexts, exploring the potential of sound and image media in transmitting knowledge and cultural traditions. Initial sessions will especially focus on identification of various formats including the playback equipment, life expectancy of media and ways of detecting deterioration.

Additional course topics will include: current knowledge and practices for documenting and cataloguing, media handling and storage, risk assessment of collections, emergency preparedness and response, criteria and technologies for migration and reformatting, planning preservation projects, outsourcing options, digital preservation and management. Other issues such as curating and access, copyright laws, legal deposit, and institutional and national preservation policies will be discussed in context with participants' working realities. Adaptation to technological changes and related cost-effective preservation strategies will form a key component of the course.

The course is aimed at professionals working with mixed collections that have sound and image records of national or regional significance. In particular, it will interest archivists, collection managers, conservators, curators and librarians in charge of preserving such collections in various cultural institutions around the world. It will also interest Information Technology professionals working on projects involving digitization of sound and image collections or allied professionals and managers working for broadcasting institutions. Preference will be given to people actively involved in teaching and advising.
