The Intangible Cultural Heritage Office is often asked to assist community groups with digitization projects. Recently, we were asked for help digitizing some audio tape cassettes and 8 mm and 16 mm motion picture film. These items were created by and are now in the possession of the Presentation Sisters. Due to the unavailability of equipment, the film recordings have not been viewed in many years, leaving their content a mystery.
Working with the Memorial University's Digital Archives Initiative, the ICH Office has begun repairing and digitizing these materials, allowing the content to be viewed and heard for the first time in decades. After review, the Presentation Sisters will provide the ICH Office with portions of these recordings to upload to MUN's DAI. Stay tuned for updates!
