  1. 1. INTRODUCTION TO AUDIOVISUAL ARCHIVESEdited by Peter Stockinger, Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, Paris, FranceToday, audiovisual archives and libraries have become very popular especially in the field of collecting,preserving and transmitting cultural heritage. However, the data from these archives or libraries constitute assuch only potential cognitive resources for a given public. They have to undergo more or less significantqualitative transformations in order to become user- or community-relevant intellectual goods.These qualitative transformations are performed through a series of concrete operations such as: audiovisualtext segmentation, content description and indexing, translation, etc. These and other operations constitutewhat we call the semiotic turn in dealing with digital (audiovisual) texts, corpora of texts or even entire(audiovisual) archives and libraries. They demonstrate practically and theoretically the well-known “from datato metadata” or “from (simple) information to (relevant) knowledge” problem, that obviously directly influencesthe effective use, the social impact and relevancy and therefore also the future of digital knowledge archives.Contents 5.

One central question is simply speaking how they can be used in specific (social, pedagogical, etc.) contexts and what are their potential interest for target groups (communities, professionals, students, researchers, etc.). This book examines from a theoretical, methodological, technical and practical point of view the question of the (creative) exploitation of digital audiovisual archives in especially three main directions of work: - The repurposing and republishing of existing audiovisual data. - The building of community centric audiovisual archives. - The use of digital social media and Web 2 technology for the diffusion and sharing of audiovisual content.
