Resource links on magnetic tape preservation (and more)

VidiPax, which does magnetic media restoration, has an extensive resource list on its web site that includes links for:
  • Magnetic Tape Preservation Reference
  • Histories of Audio and Video Technologies
  • Professional Groups and Associations
  • Museums, Repositories and Historical Organizations
They've pulled together information from many sources here. For example, how many video, audio or film formats have there been? There are links here to help you answer that. And if someone donates media for you to digitize, these lists may also help you figure out what you have (so you can better talk to vendors about it).
