Reel to reels in boxesPeople have been speaking for a long time. (Probably since Adam ;-) ) In the archive we have 100s of Reel-to-Reels and cassette tapes with stories and texts in the languages SIL has served over the last 70 years. Many of these stories have never been written down. These stories and recordings are valued by the people groups whom SIL serves. They sometimes write to SIL and ask for copies of any audio, pictures, or traditional stories which our archive might have. The challenge is that many of these Reel-to-Reels have never been inventoried or digitized. And in many respects we don’t know what we have. Much of Hugh’s time has been developing a set of things the archive needs to know about the audio pieces.
