Radio Preservation Task Force

A project of the Library of Congress National Recording Preservation Board

The Radio Preservation Task Force (RPTF), created early in 2014, grows out of the Library of Congress National Recording Preservation Plan and seeks to:

  1. To support collaboration between faculty researchers and archivists toward the preservation of radio history
  2. To develop an online inventory of extant American radio archival collections, focusing on recorded sound holdings, including research aids
  3. To identify and save endangered collections
  4. To develop pedagogical guides for utilizing radio and sound archives
  5. To act as a clearing house to encourage and expand academic study on the cultural history of radio through the location of grants, the creation of research caucuses, and development of metadata on extant materials.

More information about the RPTF can be found on the Library of Congress website.
