Toepassing: 

This guide is constructed for human rights activists who are creating or collecting digital video to document human rights abuses or issues. The guidelines are meant to make sure that the video documentation can be used for advocacy, as evidence, for education or historical memory - not just now but into the future. In other words, the guidelines ensure that a video collection is managed, authenticated and preserved, keeping the content accessible and usable in the long-term.

 

After a short introduction into archiving and how to use this guide, the guidelines are presented according to the workflow: Create, Transfer, Acquire, Organize, Store, Catalog, Preserve and Share.

The website includes:

  • a glossary;
  • an introduction to key concepts;
  • a tip sheet with key criteria for choosing a file sharing service for transferring video with a comparison of a few popular options;
  • an introduction into how to use video as evidence.
