Professional Advice: So you want to be a Moving Image Archivist

The committee is putting together a resource page for people interested in becoming a moving image archivist and we’d love to hear from professionals in the field.

If you have been or are currently working as a moving image archivist what would you say to someone thinking of entering the field?

What would you have found helpful to know before becoming an AV archivist?

What kind of education, experiences, and/or personal traits do you find most valuable to the longevity of your career?

What would you have done differently knowing what you know now?

How has the field changed since you entered it and where do you see it going?

We hope to have this resource out on our website by the end of the year. Please contact us using the form provided below. Thank you for your invaluable insight.
