Hi Rich,

You might check out the resources as  Alternatively, you should
find some good discussion around this topic on various sites dedicated to
oral history preservation (oral history groups are doing very advanced work
in this area, as it is central to their core interests).

You will probably find as many answers as there are members of this list
about audio preservation formats though - it is still an area under
construction in long-term preservation thinking!

Good luck with it.

Greetings from Wonderful Wyoming,

I am looking for help with the following question:

We are in the process of accessing our departing Governor's records. We
think we have a handle on word processing documents and graphic files, But,
what about the Real Audio recordings?  Is there a preferred "archival"
format for digitized sound recordings?  Obviously we'd like to have these
transcribed, but that is probably down the road.  Is there a migration

Thank you for your wisdom.
