I am a grad student in the MLIS program at the University of
Washington, currently taking a class on Archiving.  I am working with
two other students on a group research paper, the topic of which is
"Digitizing Sound Files for Preservation and Access".  We want to
focus on the challenges of such projects, in terms of technology,
remote access, and (possibly) the surrounding legal issues.  What are the
challenges that Sound and Music Archivists currently face?  We would
appreciate any ideas, comments, or direction toward good literature
on this topic.

Thanks much!
