T12 - The Basics of Archival Preservation

James Sam, Hoover Institution, Stanford University - Stanford, CA, USA

The audio preservation program at the Hoover Institution Archives of Stanford University is a real-world implementation of archival best practices. Two large collections of the Archives are the Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty and Commonwealth Club of California collections. They are eerily similar in their recording formats and time spans despite being generated on two different continents, yet the archival approach remains the same. Mr. Sam will discuss this approach using these examples and its implications for both legacy and new recordings. He will describe preservation methods used, employing fascinating examples from the collections.
