Janel Quirante presented “Preserving Hawai‘i’s Moving Image History through Digital Archiving: A Case Study,” co-authored with Jacob Rosen and Robbie Omura, during the conference poster session which highlights “up-to-date research emphasizing the issues and concerns encountered within the moving image archive profession.” ‘Ulu‘ulu’s poster documents our Pilot Project in which we developed and tested standard processes for cataloging, preservation, and access of over 350 hours of culturally and historically significant Hawaiian footage from 1928-1998 and offers a model for organizations undertaking similar projects.

One of the themes of this year’s AMIA conference is “professional collaboration.” ‘Ulu‘ulu’s poster fits nicely within this theme as our Pilot Project was a true collaborative effort with all the institutions and individuals who participated and contributed.
