Filling archival gaps through academic-industry collaborations
  This poster outlines key points of the Film Bang research project on the history of the Scottish film and television sector. The project is an ongoing academic-industry collaboration employing video-recorded oral histories to investigate the evolution of the local screen workforce over the last half-century and enhance the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive’s digital holdings. The Moving Image Archive holds more than 46,000 items related to the history of the Scottish screen sector, including an oral history collection, recorded mostly by the Archive’s curatorial staff since the 1970s. However, due to resource shortages in recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to sustain the production of new materials. The new batch of oral histories from this project helps to fill the gap in the collection and instantly complies with the organisation’s legal, ethical and technical requirements, making the partnership mutually beneficial.
