Archival record of a believable image of a phonograph record label: Standard procedures of digitization with emphasis on print reproduction of the label of a phonograph record for the purpose of its long-term preservation
Bezděk, Ladislav ; Gössel, Gabriel ; Studničný, Michal ; Šír, Filip
This methodology deals with the issue of the process of creating a digital copy of the phonograph record label into its archival quality. The text aims to gain insight into the complicated problems of digitization, which are very difficult for humanities-oriented professions and employees of memory institutions. The subject and goal of the methodology is to define the procedures, technologies and parameters leading to the possibilities of creating a digital image facsimile of a phonograph record label. The methodology deals with the possibilities and optimal procedures of digitization and offers an explanation of the most suitable methods of photographical capturing of the phonograph record label by means of photographic digital reproduction. The core of the text consists of the detailed description of the phases and techniques of the entire process, including the final procedures (post-process and preparation of data for archiving).

Situation and intentions in the area of care of sound documents in memory institutions of the Czech Republic
Horová, Iva ; Šír, Filip
The paper highlights the plight of the Czech Republic in the area of care for sound cultural heritage. Although this topic has recently appeared in the official state documents, there have been no changes in practice. Some steps were taken by the Moravian Land Library, but we still lack systematic support and, above all, the creation of a methodological center. We are increasingly wasting our time, physically degrading our bearers and threatening to permanently lose their content. The presented model explores the whole range of problems to be addressed and the actors that need to be involved.

The Virtual National Phonoteque as a eCulture Sound agregator
Horová, Iva ; Šír, Filip ; Žabička, Petr
The VNF Portal is a new electronic resource with unique content. Gather information about sound heritage - about the existence, location and form of sound documents in the Czech Republic. MZK on its implementation cooperates with individual institutions that keep this type of documents in their funds and take over VNF their metadata records. But it is not just about aggregating metadata records, but also about joining links to already digitized documents in the institutions involved. Thus, VNF serves as a comprehensive tool for professionals and the general public. He has the ambition to become an audio recorder aggregator can also serve to coordinate the acquisition activities of the involved institutions or to serve for shared cataloging.

the Sound Document Landscape in the Czech Republic
Horová, Iva ; Šír, Filip
This paper focuses on an area of audio preservation at the national level that has until recently been completely neglected. Our biggest challenge lies in the fact that we still do not have a Czech National Sound Archive, primarily because we lack systematic preservation policies for audio at a national level. Over the last two years much has been accomplished, but the direction has not been firmly established, and it does not yet have strong institutional support. While our goals have recently been captured in the State Cultural Policy, 2015-2020, the question of funding has not been resolved. In this presentation, we will discuss some of our recent, important activities. Our platform, which aims to fill a gap in understanding the national sound cultural heritage, is called the Virtual National Phonotheque ( It informs users about the existence, location and content of all audio documents published or housed in the Czech Republic. It is very important that we also cover the history of the Czech sound industry, record labels and publishing. In addition, we are moving forward in many other directions related to the preservation of audio recordings. We want to highlight the gains we have made in our work so far, all without big projects or money from the Czech Republic.

New Databases not only for Music Fans
Horová, Iva ; Šír, Filip
The paper describes the present and plans in the field of creating sound documents databases. These e-sources brings important informations not for musicologist and musicians only, but it is study and research support for history, theatre, film music, oral history, voice recording, sound industry etc. As a first we will speak about the Virtual national phonotheque, which is at the stage of significant change. After period of longer stagnation new renaissance is coming. The second very interesting source is an international database Bibliography of Discographies. This amazing project started in 2016 and arises after patronage of Discography Committee of IASA thanks to Filip Šír (the chair of the DC) and Peter Laurence from Harvard University - Library Eda Kuhna. Further information will bring about two planned outputs to be come up in the frame of NAKI II project New Phonograph in National Museum in Prague. The first one is the National discographic database, the second one a specialised sound portal.

Houston, we have a problem: how to teach young generation to preserve sound cultural heritage
Horová, Iva ; Novotná, Helena ; Šír, Filip
Media preservation and archiving needs unique skillsets. We live in a time of technology that enables us to utilize it in favor of the world sound cultural heritage, especially in terms of its protection for the next generations. We would like to ask and discuss some crucial questions related to our power, to the IASA aims, objectives and possibilities in the matter of design, promotion and dissemination of training in this area. But it's not just about special education and training in the usual concept. It must go on activities in the broadest sense and widest conception. Great emphasis must be placed on the motivation of getting support from the Decisions makers. We should start with a basic broad awareness. We need advocacy strategies and changing leadership skills. It is necessary to seek new ways of cooperation and ways of thinking. We need reshaping of our own minds, our abilities and skills. Without the young generation we are lost – we need to involve it, to wake up their interest, pass on to them our knowledge and know-how. On several cases from our practice in the CR we will show how successful we were and where we were not.
