Processing information: This collection has been processed in stages. The inital work was to create descriptive records for the open reel 5, 7", and 10" audiotapes using information taken from box and open reel labels. Some stages of processing included digitisation of the recordings on these open reels. Further work to enhance descriptive records using information given by the donor and information gleaned during digitisation was done from 2017.
Processing of this collection is happening on an ongoing basis.
Where paper sheets were found in audiotape boxes these have been rehoused separately for conservation reasons, and described with a folder item record.
During digitisation, some open reels were found to be blank and their descriptive records were enhanced to indicate this fact. The recordings on these open reels had not been retained by the radio station. The records and the reels have been retained by the Library.
