Archival Storage

home about us the archive

The EVIA Digital Archive Project is concerned with both physical and digital storage of holdings. Operating out of the Archives of Traditional Music at Indiana University, the Project is a partner with of one of the oldest and largest university-based ethnographic sound archives in the United States. Physical tapes, whether they are the original tape or a Digital Betacam preservation master, are stored in the temperature and humidity-controlled vault of the Archives of Traditional Music.

These items are accessioned and cataloged like any other physical item in the Archives of Traditional Music. Digital files that are either original recordings or preservation transfers from an original tape are stored in Indiana University's Mass Data Storage System (MDSS) and are managed as a partnership between the Archives of Traditional Music, The EVIA Project, and the Digital Library Program at Indiana University. The extensive metadata that is collected about the recordings as part of the EVIA deposition process is stored in a FEDORA repository created by the EVIA Project and managed as part of the Digital Library Program at Indiana.
