Audiovisual media have given rise to entirely new forms of expression through recording, communicating and entertaining. While sharing intellectual, physical and contextual characteristics with traditional media, they have distinctive physical formats and storage needs and can only be comprehended via appropriate technology. Their management must take into account traditional principles and methods of managing information resources, and new principles, methods and paradigms arising from the nature of the audiovisual media themselves. This subject provides an overview of the discipline, including its history, philosophy and ethics, the development of and models for audiovisual archives, and international organisations responsible for audiovisual heritage.
