Edited by Dietrich Schüller and Albrecht Häfner, IASA-TC 05 was published in 2014. While IASA-TC 03, presented in another tutorial at this conference, underlines that, ultimately, long-term preservation of audiovisual documents can only be achieved by “eternal” digital content migration, TC 05 explains that carrier preservation has still its important place in audiovisual archiving, as by far not all audiovisual documents have as yet been transferred to digital repositories. Also, IASA-TC 03 strongly recommends that originals be kept for potential later reference. IASA-TC 05 explains how handling and storage of audio and video carriers can be optimised to preserve original holdings, until professional long-term preservation can be organised and financed. In the presentation, reference will be made to specific precautions against the unfavourable climatic conditions in tropical zones.
