Abstract

Audio recordings are an important documentary source for academic studies in many fields, from linguistics to anthropology. During the last decades, great efforts were made to develop guidelines and best practices for the preservation of audio documents, but not as much attention have been paid to quality controls on the re-mediation process and the output data. This article presents the experience of the research project REVIVAL, aimed at the preservation of the audio documents stored in the archive of the Fondazione Arena di Verona, Italy, where a quality protocol was defined, and original software tools for automation of control were developed.
