    1. 1. MANAGING DIGITALVIDEOFrom Practice to Theorykgregg@acpl.info"Its a rather rare phenomenon for an established medium to die.They usually expand wildly in their early days and thenshrink back to some protective niche as they are challengedby later and more highly evolved competitors . . .but some media do, in fact, perish." …………. Bruce Sterling Dead Media Manifesto

    5. 5. Traditional SidePrograms come in from outside (Import, Local Import)not archivedPlayedif digital, erased,if traditional format, given back.Programs from inside the facilityadded to database.Weeded then stored as tape in subbasement.
    6. 6. Digital SideDigital sideOutside the facility (few but growing)Inside the facility (from FCP)and from below (tapes from the subbasement that are digitizedfrom regular playback)Most import programming=DVDs
    7. 7. Speaking of the Tape Library(Intellectual)Unique identifier=Program Number + Episode NumberCheck box for NAS
    8. 8. Speaking of the Tape Library(Physical)Weeding:Programs dating back to 1981.Lightly culled during 2005 facility move. Library is considered aworking library and environmental conditions are access storage.
