Preservation training is essentialCARE AND CONSERVATION OF SOUND MEDIA  Recordings are preserved in many formats from wax cylinders to the new digital recording media.  These formats all have idiosyncrasies and need specialist care and conservation.  The Sound Archive has over thirty years experience in the preservation of these recordings and can offer practical help and advice in protecting your collection   The Archive can also offer half-day or day training courses in the conservation and preservation of recorded media.  These courses cover all the common formats which may be encountered by an archive or collection.

A charge will usually apply for the training courses.
