Does anyone know if a survey looking at digital audio archiving
strategies has been conducted recently?
At the Macaulay Library, DVD's of 96/24 AIFF files form our primary
digital storage media. We create both a Master and Safety DVD. We
also store a copy of the 96/24 Hi-res files on our SANS. Some suggest
that we should consider the Hi-res files stored on our SANS as our
primary archive (not an opinion I share.) The choice of either
storage media as primary may seem insignificant but it does affect
If anyone knows of a survey that deals with this topic or would like
to share their own strategies, I would appreciate hearing about it.
