The online book launch of Share That Knowledge! A Road Map for Sharing Knowledge across Generations of Audiovisual Archivists took place on Wednesday 22 November. The video recording of this webinar is now  accessible at the bottom of this webpage.

The book is the result of a four-year research project into the methods and strategies of sharing knowledge within audiovisual archives, which was initiated by the Austrian Film Museum and the Slovenian Cinematheque, joined by colleagues from 11 other audiovisual archives, and supported by the Austrian government and FIAF.

The goal of Share that Knowledge! was to find better strategies for sharing knowledge within our profession of audiovisual preservation. The final publication, a "road map", focuses on finding the right methods for transferring knowledge and skills that are at risk of being lost (organizational, technical, preservation, and collection knowledge), the situations and scenarios that need our attention when it comes to knowledge transfer (starting a job, leaving a job, during daily work, and when knowledge has left), as well as successful practices that we found in the examples of the colleagues we interviewed. The book is now available both as a free PDF file and in a limited print version which you can order HERE.

The online presentation (see the video recording below) provided an overview of the research that has been done, presented the findings and the book, and provided ideas about how you can use this book within your organization. Colleagues from the BFI and the Austrian Film Museum told about their experience with knowledge sharing practices.
