Spring 2008, John Passmore, Internship at Standby/Mercer Media

Digitization of vinyl records and analog video formats – such as 1/2' open reel and 3/4' – was the primary focus of John Passmore's internship at Standby/Mercer Media. The internship exposed Passmore to best practices for audio and video preservation services from the perspective of a private/public partnership of Standby and Mercer Media. He also practiced skills in cataloging digital files, and conducted research on pricing structures in various companies or organizations providing preservation services.
