IMLS funds Archivematica and Avalon integration

We are pleased to report that Archivematica will be integrated with Avalon to support long-term preservation of time-based media! The Avalon Media System is an open source system for managing and providing access to large collections of digital audio and video. The freely available system enables libraries and archives to easily curate, distribute and provide online access to their collections for purposes of teaching, learning and research. The Avalon community is made up of a dozen educational, media and open-technology institutions, led by Indiana University and Northwestern University. Integration will be funded as part of a larger IMLS grant supporting interoperability enhancements for Avalon and the development of a hosted services model for the software. Work on the Avalon-Archivematica integration is scheduled tentatively to begin in the Fall of 2017. Check out the Avalon project blog for more information!
