In this presentation, we highlight a collaborative venture between Dalhousie's Fountain School of Performing Arts (FSPA) and the Dalhousie University Archives. Our project focuses on enhancing the description, access, and preservation of a fascinating collection of FSPA's audiovisual recordings. We will share how we prioritize archiving and cataloguing digital recordings for long-term preservation using the Archivematica system and the Archives' Access to Memory (AtoM) finding aids site. With streamlined workflows and guidelines, and an eye to managing challenges related to intellectual property, we manage future transfers within our infrastructure while following archival best practices.
