The Key to More Access

How improved data and a single search-box can open the door to greater content
Friday 2 December 2011 (10.30am onwards)
The Geological Society, Piccadilly, London

A BUFVC forum to discuss how current BUFVC projects will result in improved and integrated access to moving image and sound content. The BUFVC will build on the ‘Power of the VHS’ events with the announcement of ambitious plans to join up television and radio holdings data held by both broadcasters & UK educational institutions with its own expanding integrated database.  The HEFCEfunded project will be another step closer to providinga ‘one-stop-shop’ for moving image and sound material.

Other projects to be discussed include:

  • BUFVC federated search – an innovative ‘all-in-one’ search engine accessing over 13 million records
  • Channel 4 & British Film Culture project
  • launch of latest EUscreen portal (Europe’s television heritage)
  • Chronicle: BBC Northern Ireland’s television news from the 60s and 70s

Presentations will include any issues faced during the project and how they were overcome to improve the end user experience and the resulting moving image and sound content.
