-- Audiotape Playback Workshop --

The ARSC Technical Committee presents an Audiotape Playback Workshop. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, May 14, 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., at the Pleasants Family Assembly Room, Wilson Library, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

This hands-on, elementary workshop is designed to familiarize attendees with basic best practices regarding audiotape handling, identification, and playback. After an historical overview of the medium, experienced engineers will guide you through the processes of inspecting and playing back audiotape for reformatting or monitoring purposes. You will get to physically handle several tapes, learn how to re-house audio cassettes, and learn about preservation issues faced by this format. Participants will be broken up into groups, and will spend 30 minutes on the lecture and 30 minutes on the tape decks. They are welcome to observe other participants and ask questions. The workshop is limited to 18 attendees.

Workshop registration is not included in the conference registration fee. The deadline for discounted, early registration is April 22.
