Sorry for the confusion.  Thought I had deleted the listserv from the 
email, but evidently not.

I believe that points to a server managed by ARSC.  In 
the case of this email it hosts a draft database/user interface for the 
Radio Preservation Task Force's (RPTF) "online inventory of extant 
American radio archival collections".   ARSC is collaborating on the 
development of the database and finding aid. I am unsure who from ARSC 
is participating.

I submitted data describing my project, and am anxious to see the 
database and interface fully developed and deployed.

If you want to see the database, go here:
