I know it can fit in "other" but there should be a separate place for the owner to be a business, offering a collection for sale. I have such a collection.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Radio Preservation Task Force - Metadata Entry and Collection Search Initiatives
Dear Colleagues -
I write with two invitations to participate with the Library of Congress's Radio Preservation Task Force project <https://www.loc.gov/programs/national-recording-preservation-plan/about-this-program/radio-preservation-task-force/>
The RPTF is developing a national database with ARSC to identify, map, and make searchable information regarding historical radio broadcasts. We are interested in learning more about recordings held by private collectors and any organization holding such materials. ARSC member (and RPTF Co-Metadata
Director) William Vanden Dries at Indiana University has created an online form to gather this information. Participation is simple and easy.
If you have more than one collection with radio recordings or radio-related materials, please fill out the form separately for each collection. We will keep your name private if requested, and at no point will we ask for your materials. Our goal is to comprehensively canvas the extant recordings of radio history.
The form can be found at:
Second, we invite all ARSC members to participate in this project to locate and preserve our radio heritage. If you have any questions about participating with our canvas work, they can be directed to RPTF Network Co-Director Neil Verma at [log in to unmask] There are many ways to contribute and your participation can be scaled to your convenience.
For general questions about the RPTF please feel welcome to contact me directly at this email address. I also post regular updates about the project's progress at the RPTF page at Facebook <https://www.facebook.com/groups/radiopreservation/>. Thank you very much for your questions in Bloomington. This project <https://www.loc.gov/programs/national-recording-preservation-plan/about-this-program/radio-preservation-task-force/>
cannot succeed without the participation and close consultation of the ARSC community.
