RESOURCE: American Archive of Public Broadcasting Online Reading Room 5

The Library of Congress’ blog, The Signal: Digital Preservation has published a guest post by Karen Cariani, Alan Gevinson, and Casey Davis (WGBH), on the American Archive of Public Broadcasting’s (AAPB) Online Reading Room. The AAPB Online Reading Room is a collaboration between WGBH Educational Foundation and the Library of Congress, and is designed to “preserve and make accessible significant historical content created by public media, and to coordinate a national effort to save at-risk public media before its content is lost to posterity.”

The post documents the project’s creation from the perspective of the primary team members (Cariani, Gevinson, and Davis), and highlights several of the historic recordings available through the collection, including radio interviews with Rosa Parks, Edward R. Murrow, and Simone de Beauvoir. The AAPB Online Reading Room also includes three curated exhibitions:
