Podcast Preservation

Screen Shot 2018-02-25 at 2.12.33 PMPodcasts have become increasingly popular in the past few yers, specifically with the younger generations. Being fairly recent born-digital entities the effects of digital decay have not yet set in, but of course is inevitable. They are not collected by any cultural institutions so the preservation is largely up to the individuals who run them. The Metropolitan New York Library Council just received grant funding for $142,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help independent podcasters to preserve their podcasts against this. The way they are doing this is actually creating a series of podcasts about the preservation of podcasts. Seems pretty appropriate!

Preserve This Podcast! A new grant-funded project will help podcasters make sure their work doesn’t disappear.
