Yes, MLS means Master of Library Science. And it's true that very few library/archival programs provide extensive training in audio preservation. They focus on text, and rightly so, because that's what the vast majority of librarians and archivists work with. Very few of us are lucky enough to work with sound recordings.

Not to pick on you, but what does "sideways" mean? Vertical or
I guess they aren't teaching this craft very well wherever you went
MLS/MA is Master Library Science? MA is what? Master of Arts?
I'm just a simple audio engineer who didn't finish college, so I'm
