The Österreichische Mediathek in Vienna is the national archive for audio and video recordings. Over 1.2 million audio recordings are stored on various carriers like tape, records, 78s, CDs, DATs, or audio cassettes. Since the year 2000 our staff developed and implemented half automated workflows for digitizing all these different formats. Meanwhile there exists a complete system for digitizing over cataloging to long term preservation in a mass storage system. The tour starts with a short presentation of this concept, followed by a visit of the storage vault and various premises. Also interesting is the digital presentation platfom of the content: the catalog and a growing collection of galleries on the Web.
