Geoffrey's role in the library
As part of the Stanford Media Preservation Lab team, I coordinate the flow of audio-visual library materials from and to our facility over on Page Mill Rd. Currently, I also handle all audio reformatting duties for the formats we accomodate in house (1/4" open reel tape, audiocassettes, DATs, discs). When we encouter formats we cannot play, such as film or open reel video, I work with outside vendors to outsource the work. Do you have a question about media reformatting? Let me know!
