Program National Recording Preservation Plan

About This Program

The National Recording Preservation Plan has been devised to provide a blueprint to "implement a comprehensive national sound recording preservation program," as mandated in the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000.

The congressionally mandated plan spells out 32 short- and long-term recommendations involving both the public and private sectors and covering infrastructure, preservation, access, education and policy strategies.

This website has been created to implement Recommendation 1.6 of the plan, which calls for "a collaborative online resource to collect, vet, and disseminate knowledge and best practices in the field of recorded sound preservation."
