Abstract/ Summary

The Maine Folklife Center has embarked on an ambitious project to digitize the entire collection of the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History. To that end, the University of Maine has contracted with George Blood L.P. of Philadelphia to provide audio digitization services to create a digital preservation master of each of our sound files for the Library of Congress and the University of Maine from our original copies of analog tapes (reel to reel, cassettes, and VHS). George Blood L.P. was chosen from a group of companies who responded to a request for proposals because his company was able to demonstrate the necessary ability and expertise with digital audio preservation and conservation and experience in providing these services in conformance with Library of Congress standards. Joshua Parda, a graduate student in history, is preparing all the metadata for the audio files and packing and shipping the tapes to the lab in Philadelphia.
