The way in which video (including âfilmâ) materials are produced and the pathways by which they are distributed have changed radically from the days of VHS or even DVD. This has broad implications for our cultural memory institutions and also for efforts to attempt to even understand patterns of availability of material for libraries, or the stewardship status of materials. Iâll present what I believe are a number of open research questions. This seminar talk and discussion will continue and complement an earlier seminar session focusing on music.
