Preserving and Enhancing Access to Non-Commercial Sound Recordings at The Harry Ransom Center

A preservation risk assessment of 13,991 sound recordings from the Harry Ransom Center’s archives documenting 20th-century writers and performers such as John Beecher, Erle Stanley Gardner, Gloria Swanson, David Mamet, and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Anne Sexton.

The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin requests funds to support a $35,132 one-year project to develop and complete a preservation survey of the Center’s archival sound recordings. This survey will establish, enhance, and document preservation digitization priorities, processes, and standards to ensure future access to a significant collection of primary research materials.
