KMUW is currently seeking a Digitization Archive Professional.
This two-year position will manage and execute the collection and organization of public broadcasting materials, including metadata descriptions, from seven stations across Kansas following the preservation process of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting. The position will research content to develop an archive from the 1950s to present day that presents the state's history and culture in audio and video recording. The 3,000-5,000 tapes will require cataloguing an inventory for transfer to a digitization vendor. This position will manage the vendor relationships, as well as relationships with other stations and historians involved in the Kansas Public Media Digitization Project. Once digitized, this large inventory will be available online through AAPB and the Library of Congress.
Applications close March 4, 2020.
