User generated content from the public.
Tagging vs. cataloguing
Growing amount of content makes authenticity check very difficult.
How reliable is non-professional creation of audiovisual content? Quality control inside the community. - "Rip 'n mix culturist" should present his/her views.
The consequences of convergence of distribution, media, consumer vs producer
Traditional borders between distributing channels are torn down? (TV content on mobile devices etc.).
New distribution channels and platforms create new programme genres! - (How) are they archived?
Interactive TV and TV archives.
Tools give the possibility to multi-task jobs
