[AV Media Matters] Digital audio file formats

We're designing a preservation plan for the Alaska state government,
for their collections of legislative recordings. We are planning on
advising that instead of making preservation copies to a tape format
or CD, digitization and storage on hard drives be done (stored
off-site from the original tapes), achieving access copies and
backup migration in one step. Any thoughts or concerns anyone has
with this, I'd be pleased if you'd pass them along.

I'd also like to hear suggestions regarding file formats to capture
in- ".wav" files have been suggested. Anyone willing to comment (on
or off the record) on this vital decision area, please contact me.
It is highly likely the data will end up on one of the state's
servers, so there will also be other copies of the data out "in the
world" once we digitize.
