The International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives will host its 49th conference in Accra this year, from October 1st to 4th.
All participants will be received at the Institute of African Studies to share information on the topic of “Access and Accessibility – Archival Policies and Barriers in the Age of Global Information Exchange”.
On this occasion, Jean-Baptiste Meunier (CEO) and Emiliano Flores (Project Manager) will be on site to present a study entitled “Towards a shared standard terminology in the description of audio phenomena in sound archives of the global digital era”.
Our experience in processing tens of thousands of audio archives has allowed us to highlight the challenges and difficulties to standardize terms used in audio archiving, giving to future generations a unified documentation about the processed carriers.
Our Project Manager will give a presentation on October 3rd at 10 a.m., to propose practical solutions and open up the discussion on that subject.
