The world of an archivist in radio archives

For International Archives Day on Sunday, 9 June 2013.
There is a promotion going on on social media to promote a Goodledoodle for International Archives Day, something that has never been done before.

The focus is on archives for 9 June for International Archives Day as well, with the hashtag #savearchives.

 

I love being an archivist, and get totally lyrical about finding an interview with an important (or  even not so important) person in history: or that “lost” programme; or listening to material from the previous century…

We have sound material in our archives that spans more than a century, from the end of the previous previous century, the 1800s.

How cool is that!

 

I found this blog post I did three years back for the SABC Media Libraries‘ blog about the daily challenges of a sound archivist.

The daily frustrations or challenges of an archivist are things like unmarked and undated archive material that needs to be catalogued, classified and preserved!

I would like to share the blog post here:  READ HERE

 

I also updated my Pinterest Board yesterday about Archives, just in time for International Archives Day 2013.

Please give me a shout-out if you have something interesting to add!

Happy International Archives Day on Sunday!

 

Thumbs crossed for that Googledoodle – use #googledoodle and #savearchives on Twitter, please!
