I am working on the design of an online tool to be used by individuals and institutions/organizations possessing, researching, or working in any other way with sound recording collections. The tool is in direct response to a recommendation in a recently published report by the Library of Congress, the National Recording Preservation Plan. The recommendation calls for a sound recording collections directory that includes both private collectors' collections and institutions/organizations' collections.

The surveys are open to individuals and institutions/organizations located in any country. All collections of sound recordings are applicable, regardless of origin, format, subject matter, or purpose.

I am a Master's student at the University of Texas at Austin's School of Information. In addition to meeting the recommendation of the report by the Library of Congress, I am designing this tool for an independent study course.

To better design the tool for use by individuals and institutions/organizations, I am gathering information about each respective community and their sound recording collections through a pair of surveys. I received help finalizing the surveys from members of the library, archive, private collector, dealer, and information science communities.

The surveys can be taken online and will be open for responses until November 11. The links to access the two surveys are directly below.

Survey link for individuals:

Survey link for institutions/organizations:

If both surveys apply to you, there are no restrictions to prohibit you from taking both. Once you finish taking the first survey, a link will be provided if you would like to take the second survey as well. Or, you can follow each link in this email to access the two surveys.

Many thanks in advance,
