Join us for an introductory workshop on reformatting your audio collections (cassette tapes, reel-to-reel tapes, etc.) . Digitizing your analog audio recordings allows them to be made available on the web. There are many other benefits, such as extending the life of fragile recordings and making them more accessible.
Workshop participants will learn the basics of digitizing audio. This knowledge is essential whether you choose to digitize material in-house or use a vendor. Topics that will be covered in this workshop include the benefits of digitizing audio collections, planning a project, equipment needed to digitize, audio reformatting software, metadata specific to audio reformatting, and storage and preservation considerations. The workshop will also include a demonstration of digitizing a cassette tape.
