Session Title

Transforming an Antiquated Vinyl Record Collection Simply and Frugally

Description

Since the rise of digital-audio formats that began 25 years ago, analog recordings on vinyl have become more and more obsolete. However, this does not mean that the contents of the recordings are not worth preserving and utilizing in the digital age. Marywood University has a large and varied collection of LPs that languish on the shelves. Even the library does not currently possess a turntable to allow the records to be played by patrons. I would like to discuss the potential, process, and cost of creating digital files of the analog recordings and making them easily available to the university community.
