AUDIOTAPE PLAYBACK WORKSHOP
On May 14, the ARSC Technical Committee presents its "Audiotape Playback
Workshop." This hands-on, elementary workshop is designed to familiarize
attendees with basic best practices regarding audiotape handling,
identification and playback. After an historical overview of the medium,
experienced engineers will guide you through the processes of inspecting and
playing back audiotape for reformatting or monitoring purposes. You will get
to physically handle several tapes and learn how to re-house audio
cassettes. Preservation issues faced by this format will be discussed. The
workshop is limited to 18 attendees, so sign up now!

A separate registration fee applies for the workshop. Pre-registration is
required. For more information, see:

ALL THINGS DIGITAL WORKSHOP
On May 14, the ARSC Education & Training Committee presents "All Things
Digital: Managing Digital Audio Collections." This day-long workshop will
bring together professionals from a variety of backgrounds to discuss the
management of file-based audio collections, digitized and born digital. Our
speakers will look at different aspects of digital collections including
digital curation, collecting born-digital recordings, ingest, access,
delivery, cost issues and funding, best formats for storage, and
prioritizing and migration strategies for future storage.

ARSC is offering this workshop in a live-streaming, online version for those
who are unable to attend in person. An archived version will be made
available to all registrants, for a limited time.
