Thank you for all the suggestions and help... please keep it coming. I am
still sifting through all of Richard Hess's suggestions and the threads
that stem from them. I have my copy of Marvin Camras' book on the way too.
However, I wanted to clarify my second question, about institutions
digitizing their own cassettes, and I apologize in advance because I
suspect this question is naive. Nonetheless, I didn't mean to suggest that
anyone with a tape deck and a PC should start digitizing cassettes. Rather
I was wondering if folks on the listserv thought that there was some middle
ground and if audio cassettes might be a part of that middle ground? So I
guess a better way to state the question is: WIth some modest investment in
equipment, resources and training do folks on this listserv believe an
archive/museum/historical society could responsibly digitize (for
preservation) its own audio cassettes of spoken word materials? or even
more dynamic content like music? Or is this just something that should only
be done by professionals in a professional environment? (and Mr. Hess did
answer this in his response, but I wonder what other opinions might be.)

Best,
-Derek
