Migration will be planned and managed in a collaborative manner to achieve the shared goals of collection preservation and access, and according to LAC's strategic objectives. LAC recognizes that the migration of audiovisual recordings can be undertaken in-house or elsewhere. An appropriate combination of the following implementation strategies will be explored:

  1. In-house Migration
    • LAC will maximize in-house migration operations by reengineering workflow and automating processes.
  2. Partnerships and Collaborative Arrangements
    • LAC will actively seek partnerships and collaborative arrangements to accelerate the pace of migration and to promote new research and access opportunities. Migration done through partnerships may be done on or offsite.
  3. Supply Arrangements
    • LAC will seek supply arrangements with private suppliers of audiovisual migration services.
