Collecting Online Music Project

A planning meeting to discuss issues and possible solutions pertaining to the curation and preservation of born-digital music.

Music libraries are well positioned to collect, preserve, and provide access to sound recordings on such tangible formats as LP, CD, audio cassette, and even reel-to-reel tape. However, as music distribution moves into an increasingly online-only mode, music libraries face an array of disruptive collection, preservation, and access issues. How will music libraries adapt to online and "format-free" distribution models? How will they collect, preserve, and provide access to online music that's not part of a subscription package? The University of Washington Libraries requests Digital Humanities Start-up funding of $17,881 to hold a planning meeting to begin the development of a cooperative collection development, access, and preservation strategy for online music. This meeting will include participants from several academic libraries that have been grappling with this emerging issue. To insure a diversity of perspectives, input will also be solicited from mainstream and independent music industry representatives and advocates at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.
