2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Association for
Recorded Sound Collections.

For our 50th annual conference, we return to the location of our first one .

Bloomington, Indiana, and is hosted by Indiana University at Bloomington.
"Recorded Sound in the 21st Century: Preserving, Collecting, Collaborating &
Connecting" is the theme for the conference.

The pre-conference workshop will be held May 10-11, 2016 in IU's new
facility for the Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative. This
two-day workshop is an audio-archiving boot camp based on the recently
published "ARSC Guide to Audio Preservation."
