Institutional recordings represent a significant portion of the scholarly output of academic music schools and departments. Audio and video recordings of faculty recitals, student recitals, ensembles, and guest artists provide a unique record of musical life in an academic environment. Libraries have often been responsible for describing, preserving, and providing access to these valuable collections.
Managing Institutional Recordings brings together a variety of articles on different aspects of collecting and managing institutional recording collections. This compilation of essays and case studies, written by known experts in the field, explores solutions to managing collections in a variety of institutions across North America. Topics include planning, managing, cataloging, preservation, and legal aspects of collections. As a unique exploration of the topic, Managing
Institutional Recordings will provide readers with resources and guidance on their own institutional recording collections.
