The Radio Preservation Task Force of the Library of Congress

The Radio Preservation Task Force of the Library of Congress

Announcing the Radio Preservation Task Force, a new Library of Congress project. The RPTF is organized to encourage the preservation, research, and pedagogical application of the intellectual and aesthetic history of technology. Growing out of the National Recording Preservation Plan (NRPP) of the National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB), the Radio Preservation Task Force (RPTF) is the Library of Congress’s first national radio history project. The Radio Preservation Task Force (@radiotaskforce) was mandated by NRPB Chair Sam Brylawski in early 2014, and is directed by eminent broadcast historian and NRPB member Christopher Sterling, Associate Dean at George Washington University. Comprised of 100 media history faculty and the staff at the Library of American Broadcasting at the University of Maryland-College Park, the RPTF is currently aggregating participation from Affiliate Archives and assessing their collections.
