OU SLIS Partners In Grant

WGBH Educational Foundation in Boston was awarded a $229,772 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant to launch the Public Broadcasting Preservation Fellowship. OU SLIS is one of five partner programs and will receive two funded fellowship positions for graduate students to work on the digital preservation of historically significant media broadcasts. The OU SLIS fellows will work with the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority

SLIS is recruiting applications for the two paid fellowships, one for Spring 2018 and one for Summer 2018. These fellowships are specifically for students with a demonstrable interest in audio and visual media archives. Fellows will engage in the digital preservation of historically significant AV materials from the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority using equipment that will be located on the OU Norman campus.
