We are interested in any projects afoot to deal with obsolete video materials. At the NFB, we are hoping to find new ways to reduce, recycle or reuse video materials that are no longer in use. These formats run from half inch VHS to various master formats, 1 inch, etc. Are there any archivists from institutions that have guidelines in place, or who are doing research on methods of disposing of such materials in an environmentally responsible way that would be willing to share expertise with us?
Please respond either to the list or directly to James Roberts (Collections Manager) at
