Cataloguing Masterclass 1: Cataloguing Newsreels and Cinemagazines
Organized by: FIAF
Contact:   training@fiafnet.org 

Newsreels and cinemagazines pose particular challenges for cataloguers aiming to comply with FIAF cataloguing recommendations; there are many permutations of title, series, and segments, and as many ways of cataloguing them. This is the first of what is intended to be a series of masterclasses on cataloguing different aspects of cinematographic works, and offers a rare opportunity for cataloguers to hone their skills under the expert guidance of the FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission.

Please note that the participants are strictly limited to a maximum of 12 people because of the intensive nature of this masterclass and the level of commitment required from the participants.

There will be one two-hour online session on each of the two days in which participants will discuss their own attempts at cataloguing newsreels or cinemagazines, and present examples from their own institution’s collections, with an opportunity to find out how others approach such material in their collections. Three experts from the CDC will lead the discussions, offering advice on solutions to fit the circumstances of each participant.

Prior to these sessions, participants will complete a number of preparatory tasks including a cataloguing exercise. They will have four weeks in which to do this. Participation in the online sessions will be conditional on these tasks being completed.

At the end of the workshop, attendees should be able to identify:

sources of information for the work
what elements belong in the construction of the title (issue numbers, etc.)
different types of newsreel and cinemagazine situations
the series in the resource being cataloged
what information to record for the newsreel/cinemagazine and its segments
the relationships to create.

Participants will be asked to complete a quiz to help in assessing what they have learnt.

The masterclass will be conducted in English.

The experts: The masterclass will be taught by Thelma Ross, The Museum of Modern Art, New York (Head of the CDC), Adelheid Heftberger, Bundesarchiv, Berlin (Deputy Head of the CDC), and Natasha Fairbairn, BFI National Archive, London.

Archive has value, it is a living material, likely to seduce a young audience, to create a link between generations and citizens.

Through theoretical or feedback presentations, case studies and participative workshops, they will explore different access models, discover how to design an editorial strategy, address issues of rights management and documentation, which are all essential conditions to give access to audiovisual content. Innovation will be at the heart of the programme, but the basics of archiving will not be forgotten either.
