Carl Fleischhauer, Samuel Brylawski

This paper will trace the development of a digital preservation program for sound recordings at the Library of Congress. It will outline the Library’s use of METS (Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard); survey the challenges faced in the Library’s work to create digital objects for public use, comprised of sound files and images of packaging and accompanying materials; and review the tools and methods utilized to create metatdata.
