Hi John.

The Naropa Audio Archive Project has now digitized 900 hours of the 2000
that we're funded for. We create multiple formats of sound files on
several different media, we create MARC records, and 300 hours of the
collection is now available online at www.archive.org (click
through'audio' to 'naropa').

We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Contact us at 303-546-3573. You can speak to Joe, Tim or Sue.

Best regards,
Sue Salinger

Hello,

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!

John
