The Education and Training Committee is once again offering the ARSC workshop in a simultaneous live streaming online format for those unable to attend this year's ARSC conference in person in Kansas City. The workshop and live webcast will run from 9:00 am - 5:00 PM CDT, with breaks. An archived version will also be made available to all registrants for a limited time.
“Discovery Access Methods for Sound Recording Collections” is a day-long workshop brining together professionals from a variety of backgrounds to discuss how audio resources can be found – and made findable – in libraries, archives, digital collections, and discographies. Scheduled speakers are Nara Newcomer, Music and Media Librarian at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Thom Walker, Musical Digital Services Librarian at Marshall University Libraries, Sam Brylawski, Editor/Project Manager of the American Discography Project, and Joanne Archer, University of Maryland.
