Sound archives and reissue record labels have overlapping interests in preservation of archival audio recordings. This panel brings together archivists, engineers, and record producers to explore how archives and labels can collaborate on preservation, presentation, and monetization of archival sound recordings. Topics to be discussed include how that collaboration can be leveraged to refine and promote best practices in digitization, metadata encoding, restoration ,and preparation for high resolution commercial release. Moderated by restoration and mastering engineer Jessica Thompson, this panel will also look at how libraries, archives, and record labels can form fruitful private/public relationships and the role record labels can play in initiating and potentially funding preservation of archival collections.
