Subject: asae: Call for Participants, WFAE Committee on Best Practices
To: Acoustic-Ecology Listserv
The WFAE is pleased to announce a call for participants in a Committee
on Best Practices for Metadata. The growing number of sound
archives—-both personal and institutional–presents very real and very
important challenges to how recordings are stored and labeled. Based
on a recent and vibrant discussion on the Acoustic-Ecology listserv,
we propose to discuss and propose some working guidelines for the rest
of our community. We are especially looking for people who are
interested in archiving a personal collection, people who are
currently working for an established archive or sound collection, and
people who have direct experience in the theory and implementation of
metadata practices, especially as they relate to sound recordings.
Potential members should contact me per mail with
„Committee on Best Practices for Metadata“ in the subject.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to other groups and
Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you!
