Abstract

The Audio and Video collections at the Thoreau Institutes Library are in Jeopardy of being lost forever. The media is inaccessible due to obsolescence, and much of it is deteriorating to a point were it couldn't be read, even with an appropriate player. Due to much research we have found that the majority of the collections can be easily, safely, and cost effectively converted to a digital format. A digital format will make all the different media formats in the collections accessible by a computer and easy to back up, duplicate, and preserve.
