Pop Up Archive 101 Training
Following the response to our first round of trainings on October 9th, Pop Up Archive is offering another set of trainings for anyone who missed their chance the first time around.
We are inviting a select group of producers (podcasters, journalists, oral historians, and content-creators of all stripes) to participate in our free online Archive 101 Training Workshop (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace My Complete Data Maelstrom).
Already registered and wondering where you can join us? We'll be at http://meet81149922.adobeconnect.com/archive101/.
If you’re interested in participating, register here and let us know who you are, what you’ve got, and how archiving it will change your life (or at least your work), by filling out this survey. You can email us at email@example.com, visit our website at popuparchive.org, or, in the spirit of SoundCloud, upload an audio submission to our SC Dropbox at http://soundcloud.com/popuparchive/dropbox.
Pop Up Archive
At its core, Pop Up Archive addresses the challenge of enabling any producer to share digital audio content in ways that are meaningful and useful to the public, without the need to employ an archivist. The system also provides a well-documented method for independent producers to store and access content: media files are seamlessly uploaded to the Internet Archive for permanent preservation with the option of social sharing through SoundCloud, all at no cost to the user. The initial phase of Pop Up Archive resulted in software plug-ins scheduled for fall 2012 release through Omeka, an open-source web publishing platform. Phase two of the project focuses on data standards across organizations and web service needs.
