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


Well the archive I'm in at the moment is quite traditional, mainly printed works, maps, manuscripts and the like, but when i finally graduate as a qualified archivist (!) I'm leaning towrds more electronic records management.

Sounds dull but it's actually quite interesting cos it's a bit more dynamic with constant change, life-cycles of recods and all that. You get to stay with the records from creation to destruction or trafserral to archive. But ideally I'd like to work somewhere small; a rural english village and be left to my own devices! I'd be a good community organiser!

But I'm a novice at the moment...

...we do have a good gypsy collection here in Liverpool and the Cunard shipping archive which is surprisingly entertaining!!

I've also found some sheet music in the gypsy collection which I'm going to try and photocopy for english jon and i'm sure he'll be able to let you know if it's good or not!! (I'm a bit unmusical but he's trying to get me to play the melodeon!)

What sorts of stuff are you interested in and I'll let you know what we have?
