NEDCC will be exhibiting at this year’s Forum, and are also generous sponsors. About them:
“Founded in 1973, the Northeast Document Conservation Center specializes in the preservation of cultural heritage materials for museums, libraries, and archives, as well as private collections. NEDCC serves clients nationwide, providing book, paper, and photograph conservation treatment, digital imaging, audio preservation, assessments, consultations, training, and disaster assistance. www.nedcc.org
NEDCC’s recently expanded Audio Preservation Service performs digitization of unique audio recordings on magnetic and digital audio tape, grooved media, and other rare formats. The service performs 100% attended transfers with 100% quality control (by ear, not software) for collections that demand a higher level of care and skill, using traditional and optical-scanning technologies. Funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this expanded service builds upon NEDCC’s implementation of “IRENE,” the IMLS-funded optical scanning technology developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Library of Congress for digitizing discs, cylinders, and other grooved audio carriers.”
