Step 1 of the cataloging process for student films is getting the Student Film Submission Form data.
Step 2 is downloading the student film file in preparation.
Step 3 is uploading the student film files to the firstname.lastname@example.org YouTube account.
Step 4 is creating the record for each film in the Library Catalog and creating the link in the record to the film on YouTube so that it can be viewed.
Where do they come from
Every semester, student films submitted to the upper level production classes, as well as some selected other examples, are preserved and stored in the film-archive stored on the Watkins server and cataloged so they can be searched and viewed online from the Library catalog. Student films in the catalog can only be viewed on computers connected to the Watkins server, directly or by wi-fi. Classes submitting films for archiving and cataloging will store their finished films on the Film Department server, where they can be transferred to the archive by IT and in lower resolution versions in Google Drive folders set up by the professor and shared with the email@example.com Google account. The student films are uploaded to Youtube and cataloged in the Watkins Library catalog. In addition to making the films searchable, the catalog record contains a link that will allow people accessing the catalog on campus to view the film.
