swirlygirl BS: History/future of recording media ? (17) RE: BS: History/future of recording media ? 15 Jan 02

As a trainee archivist who faces this problem with other media, the answer will eventually be to have all recordings stored on a transferrable format of some kind that allows for migration of material, even if it's not sold in that particular format...

It'll have to be something that's non-platform dependent if you know what I mean, and something that makes transferral easier.

Unfortunately as i don't deal with sound recordings much (I think we have about 2!!) I'm not too sure, but I'll look into it and get back to you.

It's a hard question to answer when you don't know the sorts of media involved as I'm not very musical...

I'll discuss it with me bloke English Jon and I'll see what I can come up with once I know the sorts of technology involved...
