music recitals, recitals, student perormances, digital preservation


At Binghamton University Libraries, we are engaged in a project where we are digitizing recordings of campus music recitals. The digitized recordings are ingested into the Libraries’ digital preservation system, Ex Libris' Rosetta. We have also created a public collection in Omeka that provides access to the recordings (on-campus only) and scanned copies of the programmes. In this presentation, I will describe how the recordings are digitized, how we create metadata, and how we preserve and make the files accessible. I will also discuss some of the challenges with the project as well as our future plans.
