South Asia Library Partners with Berkeley Lab

The Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is collaborating with The University of Chicago’s South Asia Library  to further technology that can recover and digitally re-master rare early sound recordings made on wax cylinders.  This project will help restore early recordings–including experimental recordings created in the 1880’s by Alexander Graham Bell–and design a software analysis framework to address large scale digitization of collections.   The University’s South Asia Library will be in charge of operating a mobile 2D scanning device in India, where significant early 20th century recorded sound collections still exist.
