Announcing the Magnetic Tape Alert Project

Magnetic tapeMagnetic tape replay equipment is fading out. Today’s knowledge of the linguistic and cultural diversity of humanity is widely based on magnetic tape recordings produced over the past 60 years. Magnetic audio and video tape formats are now obsolete. Spare parts supply and service is fading, replay equipment in operable condition is disappearing rapidly, and routine transfer of magnetic tape documents is estimated to end around 2025. The only way to preserve these sounds and images in the long term, and to keep them accessible for future generations, is their digitisation and transfer to safe digital repositories.

Establishment of the H. Robert Cohen/RIPM Fund for IAML Congress Travel

IAML is delighted to announce the establishment of the H. Robert Cohen/RIPM  Fund for IAML Congress Travel.

This is the second fund established by The Cohen Family Charitable Fund to support travel to IAML congresses for librarians attending their first or second congress. The new fund complements the Liesbeth Hoedemaeker-Cohen Fund for IAML Congress Travel, established in 2017.
