Abstract

A two-part case study of a film project processed and digitized by an archival institution, from the planning stages through online access. Using a single title, "The Kakeya Problem," as an entry point, these videos detail the process of shipping, identifying, rehousing, describing, and digitizing a film collection, with a focus on the rationale that shaped these processes at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
