--- ARSC PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP 2008 ---
The Education and Training Committee of the Association for Recorded Sound
Collections presents "A Workshop on Funding, Partnerships, and Dissemination
for Audio Preservation." The workshop will be held Wednesday, March 26, 9:00
a.m. - 5:00 p.m., in the Campbell Recital Hall, at Stanford University, Palo
Many archives, libraries, and other repositories have acquired a basic
knowledge of preserving their audio holdings. They understand and have
addressed equipment, metadata, workflow, and storage issues. Funding for
preservation activities is the next step, but what resources are available
and what requirements must be met?
Archivists, librarians, and collection managers -- anyone who works with or
manages archival sound recordings -- will gain information about identifying
grant-making institutions, meeting intake requirements, and exploring
possible partnerships with other institutions.
