Creating Preservation Quality Oral Histories
October 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Part 6 in our Pre-Conference web series. Making sure the stories of your oral history subjects will be available long into the future starts before you even press “record.” This session teaches participants about the technical considerations that go into making an oral history recording preservation-quality. This includes selecting the right equipment, capturing audio that is clear and with as few ambient noises as possible, and making sure your recordings are in file formats that support digital preservation. The instructor will cover practical and achievable recommendations that meet different resource levels and budget needs so that both small and large organizations can improve the preservation quality of their oral history recordings.
Join Karl Fleck, associate audio preservation engineer, for this final one hour session with the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC). We would like to thank Missouri Humanities and the National Endowment for Humanities for funding this series of programs with NEDCC.
