Audio Archiving in Australia

In November, Gareth Watkins, the Radio Collection Developer at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, visited a number of Australian archives and attended the Australasian Sound Recordings Association conference in Sydney. Some of the interesting learnings he brought back with him follow.

The conference’s theme was “Play It Forward – Sustainability in a Time of Rapid Change,” and it explored the many issues faced by audiovisual institutions in order to remain sustainable into the future.

Minor corrections to the above presentation:

  1. The buy-up of Studer tape parts was in 2004 (not in 2014 as mentioned)
  2. The NFSA “intern” describing collection items is actually a volunteer role
