Understanding and preserving audio collections

7 Nov 2011 to 9 Nov 2011
London, UK

Understanding and preserving audio collections - a 3 day course, British Library, London

7 – 9 November 2011

From the end of the 19th century, sound recordings have documented some of the most significant events in culture, science and history. Custodians of audio collections are faced with the challenge of maintaining access to our priceless audio heritage, but with so many formats, from wax cylinders to the latest audio file formats, there is a risk that recordings on obsolete and fragile formats may be lost.

Warsaw, Poland

The Fourth International Conference of the UNESCO Memory of the World Programme will be held from 18 to 21 May 2011 in Warsaw, Poland.
