(I must comment on this, since I just finished the class...)  

The School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin has an
excellent class in Audio Preservation and Reformatting.  It is taught by
ARSC member Sarah Cunningham, audio archivist at the LBJ Presidential
Library.  "Sound Directions" was one of the many required readings for
the course.  There is also an advanced class that will be offered next
year.  So there IS some training in the preservation of audio formats
being offered in library and archival programs.

Yes, MLS means Master of Library Science.  And it's true that very few
library/archival programs provide extensive training in audio
preservation.  They focus on text, and rightly so, because that's what
the vast majority of librarians and archivists work with.  Very few of
us are lucky enough to work with sound recordings.

Not to pick on you, but what does "sideways" mean? Vertical or  
horizontal?

I guess they aren't teaching this craft very well wherever you went  
to school...

MLS/MA is Master Library Science? MA is what? Master of Arts?

I'm just a simple audio engineer who didn't finish college, so I'm  
not coming from a superior attitude, just asking. When I google MLS I  
get multiple listing service!
