Dear colleagues,

Today is the last day to make a financial contribution to the American Archive of Public Broadcasting Public Broadcasting Preservation Scholarship<>. So far, we have raised nearly $2,000 and would sincerely appreciate your additional support to get us closer to our goal.

As you may know, WGBH is leading the American Archive of Public Broadcasting National Digital Stewardship Residency program<> funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This program supports the creation of seven residencies at public media organizations across the country, focusing on audiovisual digital preservation of public television and radio.

Our fabulous hosts include:

  *   CUNY TV<> - New York, New York
  *   Louisiana Public Broadcasting<> - Baton Rouge, Louisiana
  *   Minnesota Public Radio<> - Saint Paul, Minnesota
  *   Pacifica Radio Archives<> - North Hollywood, California
  *   Howard University Television (WHUT)<> - Washington, D.C.
  *   Wisconsin Public Television<> - Madison, Wisconsin
  *   WYSO<> - Yellow Springs, Ohio

The residencies will begin in July 2016 with a week-long immersion week in Boston, taught by leading experts in the field of audiovisual preservation. WGBH has launched a crowdfunding campaign<> to fund the Public Broadcasting Preservation Scholarship, in connection with the AAPB NDSR. The Scholarship will fund the host mentors to travel and participate in immersion week. You can find it here:<>

The scholarship would help host mentors gain and sharpen the skills that are needed to sustain digital preservation activities at beyond the term of the 10-month residency. This knowledge would improve their ability to preserve their at-risk materials for many years to come.

As a supporter of the Public Broadcasting Preservation Scholarship, you could take us many steps closer to reaching our goal.

Public broadcasting stations have been on the front lines of history for more than 60 years. Help public media professionals gain the skills necessary to preserve this audiovisual historic record for posterity by supporting the AAPB Public Broadcasting Preservation Scholarship.

Please let me know if you have any questions. We sincerely appreciate any and all support!
