T14 - PLANNING AND EXECUTING AUDIO PRESERVATION WORKFLOWS
This tutorial will address workflow planning for audio preservation activities, including audio transfers, quality assurance and control, metadata documentation, and repository ingest. The first presentation will address the fundamental concepts and principles of developing a preservation-oriented workflow with a focus on quality assessment and control. The second presentation will demonstrate the practical application of these concepts and principles as developed and documented over the past 15 months in the NEH-funded collaboration between Indiana University and Harvard University known as the Sound Directions project. This project studied multiple workflow options for the audio preservation community. One of the outputs from this project is a suite of open source tools for executing audio preservation work-flows. This presentation will offer a walkthrough of the Sound Directions Toolkit showing demonstrative examples of how it can be applied to automate routine, repetitive and mundane tasks, and create more consistent collection output.
