Abstract/ Summary

We recently completed the NEH sponsored preservation of endangered tape recordings. Over the course of the two-year grant period we built and equipped a first-class sound lab and copied over 600 hours of audio tape-recorded material to high quality preservation master reels — over 250 hours of which were also copied to public-access CD-Rs. We also expanded and standardized our finding aides for these accessions, which are among the oldest and most valuable in our collection. Now that we have the equipment and necessary procedures in place, we will continue the preservation program as part of our regular work load.

Unfortunately the end of the grant means the loss of Bruce Williams, our preservation specialist. Bruce has done an excellent job and we are sorry to see him go.
