Digital Preservation Pioneer: John Spencer

Digital Preservation Pioneer: John Spencer
The series of profiles from the Library of Congress and National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) continue:

John is the president of BMS/Chace – an archival data management and migration service – and an active member of several national audio engineering and recording committees. BMS/Chace is a partner in the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) as part of the Preserving Creative America initiative. John does not side with the artist or the label; he just wants to get the best processes in place to enable all parties to benefit from their creative work. Referring to the music industry’s current digital-preservation efforts, he says, “I would say we provide a layer of triage to new projects; we’re helping to stop the bleeding. It is time to put some basic tools out there, to organize metadata and files in a structured fashion.”
