Above and beyond this, the present feasibility study is intended to thematise urgent questions about the preservation of audio archives in our digital age. This one-year preparatory project will clarify issues of context and conservation, develop a digitisation concept, carry out initial interpretation analyses, and will plan the further indexing of the collection.
