Position Opening: Audio Preservation Engineer at NEDCC

Position Opening: Audio Preservation Engineer at NEDCC in USA         


The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) seeks an experienced audio preservation professional to serve on its expanded Audio Preservation Services team.       

NEDCC's expanded audio preservation service builds upon the Center's successful implementation of "IRENE," the IMLS-funded optical scanning technology developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Library of Congress for digitizing grooved audio carriers.  NEDCC is investing in the additional facilities, equipment, and staffing to offer reformatting of audio content on magnetic and other obsolete media using traditional approaches. NEDCC acknowledges the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the expanded audio services.          

NEDCC's service will help fill a much-needed niche of providing 1:1 transfers with 100% quality control, particularly for those highly significant collections that deserve a specialized (rather than high-throughput) workflow.  In addition to digitization, NEDCC will offer collection- and item-level surveys, cleaning, treatment, and re-housing using vetted and transparent (i.e., non-proprietary) approaches.
