PARS Photographic and Recording Media Discussion Group

Preservation of Audio Materials to be Discussed

The PARS Photographic & Recording Media Discussion Group will meet
at ALA Midwinter on Saturday, January 13 at the Library of Congress
Madison Building, Dining Room A, from 2-4 pm.

The meeting will start off with brief reports from the December 1-2
symposium in Washington on preservation and access to sound
collections, Folk Heritage Collections in Crisis.  The symposium
brought together preservation people, archivists and librarians,
people from the recording industry, and others.  Reports on the
sessions on preservation, access, and intellectual property rights,
and the recommendations made by the group, will be presented by
Charles Kolb of the NEH, Michael Seadle of the National Gallery of
the Spoken Word at MSU, and the Discussion Group co-chairs Robin
Dale and Janet Gertz.  We hope this will lead to a fruitful
discussion of other recent developments in preservation for sound
collections, including the debate between digital and analog as
preservation technologies, and to suggestions for PARS' role in this
