Workshop on sound recordings

From: Riley-Walden Alicia <alicia_riley-walden>
Date: Monday, June 5, 2000
The Society of Georgia Archivists is pleased to announce the
following workshop:

    Administration of Sound Recordings in an Archives
    Friday August 11, 2000
    Georgia College and State University, Milledgeville, GA
    Registration Fee: $35 SGA members; $50 nonmembers
    Instructor is Chris Paton, Georgia State University

This one-day workshop will begin with a brief history of recording
formats. Types of recorded media and technology used, from
phonograph records through audiotapes will be discussed, as well as
aging and deterioration characteristics of each medium. Methods for
extending the life of non-archival formats, including proper storage
and handling of the materials and the types of equipment required
for staff and patron use of audiovisual recordings will be
introduced. Sound recordings are among the most challenging formats
found in twentieth century archival collections; these recordings
contain irreplaceable information, yet are inherently unstable

Enrollment is limited; the registration deadline is July 24, 2000.
