MEDIA REVIEWS
As the digital age continues to engulf us, the question of how best to archive music and its various histories has never seemed more pressing, or more thrilling. This collection of essays by some of today's leading archivists and scholars is an essential contribution to an important conversation. -- Jack Hamilton, Assistant Professor of Media Studies and American Studies, University of Virginia
This lovely book arrives not a moment too soon. Faced with an ever expanding body of precious materials and shrinking budgets, music fans, students, scholars, and archivists alike will reach for this book again and again. An indispensable resource for those who are passionate about preserving local music. -- Ellie M. Hisama, Professor of Music, Columbia University
Guthrie and Carlson have curated a volume as eclectic as the local music scenes these essays and case studies document. From regional folk music, to punk and metal, to fan culture and folksonomies, this book represents the cutting edge of music preservation. The editors' trans-disciplinary approach makes this volume essential reading, not just for music librarians, but for any scholar or fan of music history. A vital contribution to the discourse of cultural memory. -- Spencer D. C. Keralis, Executive Director, Digital Frontiers
