> Please find, attached, a partial list of 16-inch sound recordings in our
> collections. Some of them are “acetate” discs [I know; we are missusing
> the term]. Most of the sound recordings are American, but some others came
> from Canada and Tanger (Pan American Radio).
> As our sound technician experienced some health problems during the
> transfer of the “acetates”, we are trying to know if there is any other
> institution having the same content already digitized, before hiring
> someone else to do it.
> As Steve suggested, these kind of collections might have been catalogued
> in an archival way, which is a bit more difficult to retrieve than a
> bibliographical one. We have MGM 16-inch sound recordings cataloged in an
> archival way too.
