University Television UASLP promotes conservation and preservation of audiovisual heritage

Translated from Spanish via Google Translate, with modifications

Under the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (27 October) declared by UNESCO since 2005, with the theme "Archives at Risk: Protecting the World's Identities," the United Nations for Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization calls on society to raise awareness of the need to take urgent measures and to acknowledge the importance of audiovisual documents.

UNESCO itself points out that much of the world's audiovisual heritage has been irretrievably lost due to neglect, destruction, decay and the lack of resources, competencies and structures, thus impoverishing the memory of mankind. It states that the various audiovisual recording formats are extremely delicate and it is estimated that without digitalizing audiovisual archives in the next ten or fifteen years we will lose an important part of our audiovisual memory.

Aware of the problem, the Division of Cultural Diffusion UASLP, consistent with the Institutional Development Plan, has set targets to promote, preserve and disseminate the various components of art, culture and science that are of great relevance and social significance .

As a strategy, the Division of Cultural Broadcasting through its production house "University Television" reinforces measures to rescue, protect and preserve cultural and artistic heritage of the University. This heritage of our society is made up of audiovisual materials such as films, documentaries, audiovisual works, radio and television, audio and video that contain important, transcendent and circumstantial information of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and are already part of our history and cultural identity.

For this reason, and to support the conservation and preservation of audiovisual heritage, the library of this production house is holding various activities to mark the declaration of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage:

  • Digitization and dissemination of videographic documents by its uniqueness and historical value are considered a college audiovisual heritage.
  • Dissemination of a series of interviews with audiovisual specialists nationally and internationally that address the theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.
  • Conference with students from the School of Information Sciences on various issues related to the audiovisual heritage.
  • Broadcast Media: Radio, TV and social networks highlighting the importance of conservation and preservation of audiovisual materials.

We invite everyone to explore in the official channel of the University Television production house in Youtube: interviews and videographic documents that have already been digitized, notably the sections: Audiovisual Heritage and World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.
