Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings - The Boston Globe

Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings - The Boston Globe | Digitization&Metadata | Scoop.it
An experimental physicist named Carl Haber has won wide recognition, and a MacArthur Fellowship, for a revolutionary image-scanning technology that has the power to pull sound from rare and fragile recordings without touching them, and in so doing, to help protect some of the most vulnerable corners of this country’s aural heritage. Over the last few months, a large converted mill building in Andover has become home to the fourth groove-scanning system in the country. The IRENE system in Andover lives at the Northeast Document Conservation Center, an independent conservation lab. In a small back room, a sound archivist has been working daily, scanning all varieties of records as well as older wax cylinders whose grooves are etched vertically and therefore require a special 3-D scanning technique.

Knowledge Base and Related Tools - National Information Standards Organization

Knowledge Base and Related Tools - National Information Standards Organization | Digitization&Metadata | Scoop.it
Bibliodata's insight:

NISO announces the publication of a revision to the Knowledge Bases and Related Tools (KBART) Recommended Practice (NISO RP-9-2014). The original recommended practice, issued in 2010, provided all parties in the information supply chain with straightforward guidance about metadata formatting—focused mainly on journal resources—to ensure the exchange of accurate metadata between content providers and knowledge base developers. Building on the initial recommendations, the revision includes the more granular, complex issues that cause problems in metadata supply, including consortia-specific metadata and metadata transfer for open access publications, e-books, and conference proceedings.

First thus: Reality Check: What is it that the Public Wants today?

First thus: Reality Check: What is it that the Public Wants today? | Digitization&Metadata | Scoop.it
Bibliodata's insight:

This is only one suggestion, but I believe that these are the sorts of efforts that would, even if only partially successful, make much greater differences in the lives of the patrons than RDA and FRBR could ever hope to do. Such a project would take advantage of the powers of modern systems, and would cause little disruption to the library's everyday work. And I think it would actually be a lot easier to do something like this with the catalog than what we saw with the Little League box scores. That was incredible. Give me access to the XSL sheet and I could probably do the first sentence right now. Maybe more.
