THE STORY:

WHAT IS ASB?

ASB is the Alternative Spring Break program through the University of Michigan School of Information. Instead of studying, relaxing, or vacationing, I will be working full-time at the Smithsonian Institution Archives as an intern to help with an audio preservation project. This year, the ASB program consists of 140 students who will be traveling to different cities (D.C., New York, Detroit, and Chicago) to work for different organizations that need assistance with some form of information science- related projects. There are 70 of us that will be heading to Washington, D.C. for the week. 

MY PROJECT:

Currently, the Smithsonian Institution Archives has several thousands of hours of performances, broadcasts, and other audio recordings on DATs (digital audio tapes). As new digital preservation formats were developed, Sony quit making DATs and the DAT players in the early 2000's. These recordings are at risk of becoming obsolete and could be lost forever. My goal is to transfer these recordings to a digital format, to ensure the long-term preservation and accessibility to future users. This experience will not only allow me the amazing opportunity to make a small contribution to the Smithsonian, but will also give me invaluable experience in the preservation of sound. 

WHERE DO YOU FIT IN?

The money raised through this fundraiser will help support our team (The Information Access and Literacy team) with the transportation and lodging fees associated with traveling to Washington D.C. for a week. If I personally raise $500, my $150 participatory fee will be waived (and I will also be entered in a drawing to win some really cool stuff). Also, this is a 100% tax deductible donation, plus it will make you feel good about yourself.... and make me happy! 

Thank you, all of you, for anything you can contribute - even if it's "just" a dollar - it MATTERS to all of us!
