Detail of an original reel to reel tape from the Nelson Collection.
There are several ways to listen to recordings in the Collection:
This project is the result of a unique private/public partnership. On his own, Bob Nelson collected, described, and digitized the analog recordings. John Vallier worked with Mr. Nelson to integrate these efforts into the UW Libraries' collections. Lauren Work, who was a UW iSchool graduate student at the time, played an critical role in processing the donated recordings, uploading them to Soundcloud, and embedding them in this guide. UW iSchool graduate students Patrick Mishina and Tal Noznisky, also assisted with the construction of the Soundcloud and guide sites.
