KTRU Tuesdays: Major Milestones

Two major milestones have been reached.

A) Metadata has been created for all of the KTRU tapes including 2-track reels, cassette tapes, and DATs.

B) The finding aid has been updated with descriptions of each tape. Below is an example for one tape

ktru-1

and another.

Next, each of the files will have this metadata embedded into the WAV and MP3 files. That will happen over the next few weeks. After that, the files will be separated into those that can go online and those that will only be available for listening in the reading room. There are many more small steps to go, but the end result will be a large chunk of KTRU audio online.

We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
