List, 
We are in the midst of transferring collection material into archival and listening formats. While I will 
continue to retain two gold discs as archival format, I wanted to nix the idea of using a CD for the 
listening format. Instead, I would transfer the WAV file into an MP3 and house all those listening files 
on an iPod for our end-users. 
Is this audio archival transgression? Do we need to use CDs as a listening copy, or can an MP3 
suffice. I'm trying to cut down on space and costs. 
Your collective wisdom would be most helpful.
