Aloha!

This blog has been set up to document and disseminate information about the first
phase of the Henry K. Giugni Archives Project. I have been brought on as a
consultant to develop and write a report to act as a blueprint and guide for the
creation of the Archive. 

My report will include a survey of moving image materials throughout the State of
Hawai`i, recommendations on physical requirements for a new space, cataloging
practices, handling and preservation, best practices for digitization and metadata,
personnel needs, equipment and technical needs, and the dissemination of
materials to the public online.

A summary of the report will be published here at the end of September, 2009.

Please feel free to comment on my postings and leave your opinions about the
work being done on this important project.

For more information about me and what I do please visit the
Film & Media Archive  that I manage at Washington University in St. Louis.

Mahalo,

David Rowntree
Consultant for the HKG Archive
