Re: [ARSCLIST] Hard disk drives and DAT/ calculating the future / Use LTO's

One other wrinkle to this whole issue.

Andy in Vermont raised the question (to paraphrase) -- well what about a small archive that can barely afford to keep boxes of tapes together and is slowly getting everything digitized, should they stop recording oral histories?

I would say no but consider this -- is it wise to migrate to something like a flash-memory recorder? Perhaps you should stick with cassettes until you figure out an inclusive and sustainable digital strategy.

Just a thought.
