Evolving Operations at the Vanderbilt Television News Archive

This presentation by Clifford Anderson was part of a NISO 2019 webinar entitled Preservation and Archiving of Digital Media. Anderson offered this as the abstract of his talk:

Since August 1968, the Vanderbilt Television News Archive has recorded, preserved, and made accessible the evening television news programming of the major networks. After briefly discussing its services and business model, Clifford B. Anderson will discuss how the staff of the Television News Archive have managed the process of introducing significant technological change while keeping their operations up and running. By moving key operations to cloud-based environments, they have automated routine processes, allowing staff members to contribute value in their respective areas of specialized expertise. Since this transformation is ongoing, Anderson will also describe the challenges and hurdles he and his team have faced during this process of technological migration.
