the Neumann Jazz Collection presents: U DIG IT?

The James R. and Susan Neumann Jazz Collection presents

the neUmann DIGITization project
Beginning in fall 2013, the Conservatory Library is giving interested students the chance to choose an LP to digitize from the ca. 50,000 jazz-related recordings currently in the Neumann Jazz Collection and then to answer a few brief questions about their experience.  The digitized audio will be made available to all Oberlin students and staff through the online Library catalog, and the responses will be the basis for a blog post about the experience of choosing and digitizing the LP.

The steps:
  • Sign up here.
  • You’ll be contacted to set up a time to do the digitizing, and you’ll be given more details then about how you’ll choose an LP.

Additional blog posts from the U DIG IT Project are available here.

A complete list of all currently-digitized audio from the Neumann Jazz Collection is available here.  (When prompted, enter your ObieID and password.)
