Abstract
  • This paper describes the development of a database-driven, web-based application that stores motion picture film preservation metadata. The application is derived from the paper film inspection forms that are used in many moving image archives to track the condition and changes in condition over time of film material. Many types of film are volatile and subject to fairly rapid chemical deterioration under the right environmental conditions. Handling of films may also cause wear or damage. The ability to better store and access film preservation metadata will help archivists to better gauge the success of their film preservation practices.
