We have shipped Batch 2!! 425 more tapes have been delivered to George Blood, LP in Philadelphia for digitization. This means that 425 records were all updated with correct spellings, standardized metadata and information about the original analog tape, and file-names were created for the new digital objects.
All of the tape boxes were scanned, and tape condition assessments were completed for each reel.
The tapes were packed in to 12 shipping crates; the metadata exported into an Excel spreadsheet for George Blood.
The digitization of these 425 recordings should be completed in August! We can’t wait to hear these recordings!
Thank you to George Blood, LP and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission for their support of this project.
