A colleague of mine who is getting an information science degree (aka library science) sent me a link to an article about a video archive project involving the Hubbard Street Dance ensemble -- the haphazard state of their initial collection is probably more the standard in many dance companies. I'm glad to know that they're starting to get their records in order -- perhaps they will eventually find their way online for those of us who are not in Chicago?

They didn't even mention the tendency of tapes/DVDs to disappear from disorganized archives... as administrations and staff turn over, archives sometimes lose pieces... I didn't see any of my boxes in those clips... maybe they were easier to organize... or maybe they were from an earlier period.
