---2007 ARSC AWARDS---

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections is pleased to announce the
winners of the 2007 ARSC Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound
Research. Begun in 1991, the awards are presented to authors and publishers
of books, articles, liner notes, and monographs, to recognize outstanding
published research in the field of recorded sound.

In giving these awards, ARSC recognizes outstanding contributions,
encourages high standards, and promotes awareness of superior works. A
maximum of two awards is presented annually in each category -- one for best
history and one for best discography. Certificates of Merit are presented to

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

ARSC annually presents a Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual, in
recognition of a life's work in recorded sound research and publication. The
2007 award was presented to Alan Kelly, one of the world's foremost
discographers.

Kelly has dedicated 50 years to creating detailed discographies of
recordings by The Gramophone Company (whose main labels were His Master's
Voice and Zonophone), from its 1898 foundation in the United Kingdom to its
1931 merger with the Columbia Graphophone Company to form Electric and
Musical Industries (EMI). For many years, Kelly worked in the EMI Archives,
copying and arranging material from company ledgers, to compile
discographies based on a language or geographical area, and on the technical
origin of each record. To date, he has completed the Russian, French,
Italian, and Dutch catalogues of The Gramophone Company, and ten volumes of
the HMV Matrix series. The massive scale of the company's activities -- and,
hence, of Kelly's task -- becomes evident when one examines the vast amount
of information in the discographies, disseminated by him on CD-ROM.


AWARD for DISTINGUISHED SERVICE to HISTORICAL RECORDINGS

ARSC's Award for Distinguished Service to Historical Recordings honors a
person who has made outstanding contributions to the field, outside of
published works or discographic research. This year's award was presented to
Gerald D. Gibson for his many contributions to recorded sound in the areas
of curatorship, preservation, and research.

Gibson held many positions at the Library of Congress: Sound Recording
Cataloger; Assistant Head of the Music Division Recorded Sound Section; Head
of the Curatorial Section of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded
Sound Division; and Preservation Specialist.

Gibson's lasting contributions to recorded sound scholarship and
preservation are numerous. Among them, he compiled bibliographies that today
remain essential reference works. His designs for housing and shelving sound
recordings continue to serve as models in the field. Gibson developed the
sound recording and moving image collections of the Library of Congress to a
quality appropriate for a national library. He also laid the foundations for
digital preservation of sound recordings. The curatorial practices
introduced under his tenures have become recognized as best practices in
recorded sound conservation.

Gibson served as Editor of the ARSC Journal, President of ARSC, and
President of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives
(IASA). He was a founding member of the ARSC Associated Audio Archives
Committee, which created the "Rigler and Deutsch Record Index," "Rules for
Cataloging of Sound Recordings," and "Audio Preservation: A Planning Study."
