The following is a description
of the BLC Recording Studio being sent in response to an email sent by
Richard Hess. I hope this may be of value. In particular, the studio has
done much archiving, mastering, recording and preservation of languages
from around the world, many of which are rarely spoken today. Please feel
free to contact me should you have any questions. Thanks.

interesting challenges whether or not I actually do any of it.

If you provide a resource and wish to be added, please let me know.
If there's a format you would like to know about transferring and don't
see a link to it, please ask. I may know some people who can do
The resources page offers substantial detail in the area of reel-to-reel
