Lou,

I don't have a simple answer. But I hope some of my thoughts will help.

You can intuit a lot by looking at the PBCore metadata standard,
especially in the technical metadata for instantiations. Any system
made for the broadcast industry should at least minimally comply with
PBCore. Look at the elements under PBCoreInstantiation. PBCore is the
standard for the American Archive. Another project set up to help
independent audio producers and stations in a digital cloud format is
the Pop Up Archive, which is working with the Internet Archive for
public collections of audio.

You should join and ask people on the AIR listserv [The Association of
Independents in Radio], where there are lots of audio producers. They
have more definite thoughts if they're working in the public radio
ecosystem. http://www.airmedia.org/

A lot of new producers rely on essays and resources provided by Transom.

The style manual for public radio, which includes common practices for
logging, editing, and managing audio files is found in the latest
edition of Sound Reporting by Jonathan Kern (Chicago: The University
of Chicago Press, 2008).

Hope that helps some.

Best,
Thom

We have a person who is a very good organizer, and he is designing (and constantly re-designing!) a file system to our various levels of materials. I'd like to find some industry guidelines so that I do not keep feeling I am bowing to his nitzy detailed systems. It seems to be so quirky that I would like something to compare it with.
