The Archive Guide: Your feedback requested!

We published the Activists’ Guide to Archiving Video in 2013 in response to the many questions and requests we received from activists and peer organizations about how to manage and preserve their videos. Since then, thousands of you have accessed the Guide, and we have heard from many of you informally that it has helped you in your archiving efforts.

Now, nearly two years since its launch, we want to reach out to as many of you as possible and ask more formally for your feedback! This will help us better understand who is using the resource, how useful it is, and ultimately enable us to improve the Guide and other resources to meet the needs of activists around the world.

If you have read or used the Guide, please take a moment to fill out our online survey. It should take no more than 5-10 minutes. Your answers will be kept anonymous and will be analyzed with others’ responses to identify trends. We will share the findings internally and externally, but no identifying information will be revealed. As a token of appreciation, we will send you a small gift!*

From all of us at WITNESS, thank you in advance for sharing your insights!

¿Habla español? Great! The survey is available in Spanish here.


*In order for us to send the gift to you, you will need to provide us with a name and mailing address, which will be stored separately from your survey responses.
