Brian Schottlaender, University Librarian at the University of California, San Diego, likes records. And he’d like to see others be able to listen to them decades down the road; fortunately, he’s in the right profession. In a video produced for Preservation Week, he describes his personal collection and philosophy on preservation:
Don’t miss the Captain Beefheart and Mothers of Invention albums in there. Seems taste isn’t dead after all, and future generations might just have a chance at having some–if librarians can figure out the best way to preserve these popular and other less popular but essential materials.
