Appalachian State University (Boone, NC 28608-0001)
Pamela Mitchem (Project Director: 05/20/2010 to present)

Training in Preservation of Recorded Sound

Attendance by one staff member of the Belk Library at the week-long Music Preservation Workshop sponsored annually by the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music to learn current methods in preserving diverse formats of recorded sound. The library's Appalachian Collection contains a large number of oral histories, folk ballads, and other recorded materials.

Appalachian State University's Special Collections (located in Belk Library) seeks a Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions to help underwrite the cost of sending Belk Library's Preservation Archivist, Pam Mitchem, to the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music's Summer Institute for their weeklong Music Preservation Workshop. If approved, Ms. Mitchem will receive training on how to preserve, repair, and manage recorded formats including reel to reel, cassette, LP records, and CDs/DVDs. This training is needed to care for Appalachian's large collection of oral histories and folk ballads.
