It offers complete theoretical and practical guidelines for creating, organizing, and managing a sound archive according to state-of-the-art principles that are applicable to virtually any type of project or collection. Amateurs, students, and professionals will find essential information on every aspect of the field--from public service and community outreach activities to legal implications, technical processing, and preservation. The manual supplies, in addition, a simplified guide to data-processing and microcomputer applications for the sound archivist or librarian. Beginning with a concise introduction to the field, it outlines the elements of sound archive organization and management.
