Obsolete Physical Carriers in NSLA Collections: Stage 1 

Public: This document is available to all users.

The obsolete physical carriers project seeks to provide an overview of the nature and extent of obsolete physical carriers currently held in NSLA collections and will consider options for collaborative approaches to data recovery, specifications (where possible), supplier resources and cost-sharing strategies.

This project has been approached in two stages. Stage 1 was a survey of obsolete physical carriers (both analogue and digital, and associated audiovisual and digital playback equipment) with analysis, preliminary recommendations and report. The results from the survey constitute this report.

Stage 2 will examine standards and specifications, review of skillsets, expertise and resources in NSLA libraries, wider collaborative opportunities with other institutions and/or commercial services providers, and recommendations to inform NSLA strategic directions.
