Paul Eisloeffel is an adjunct instructor of audiovisual archiving at the School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). His academic training is in History and Archives Management, and he has worked in archives since 1988. His areas of responsibility have included manuscripts, photos and public records, but he has specialized in audiovisuals (moving images and sound recordings), which he has managed for History Nebraska (formerly the Nebraska State Historical Society) since 2001. Under his direction, History Nebraska has developed one of the finest regional collections of audiovisuals in the United States. Eisloeffel created the Historical Society’s audiovisual lab, which provides the means to work with original moving images and sound recordings on-site, and to transfer them to digital formats. He is a member of the Association of Moving Image Archivists, the Association for Recorded Sound Collections, the Society of American Archivists and the Midwest Archives Conference. He is a frequent presenter, published writer, teacher and consultant on the management of audiovisuals of historic and cultural value, and has worked on several regional and national grant projects relating to moving images.
