Harvard College Library's Audio Preservation Services
Bruce Gordon joined Harvard in June 2005 as Sound Directions’ Project Engineer and, following the completion of Phase I of the Project, was promoted to a permanent audio engineering position at Harvard College Library's Audio Preservation Services. He came to HCL's Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library as a seasoned professional with 25 years experience recording, editing, mixing and restoring audio in a wide variety of formats. Having begun his career before digital audio was widely adopted, he is intimately familiar with the problems associated with analog tape and other historic formats. Gordon’s background includes designing, creating and managing audio studios and maintaining high production standards. He is a member of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections, the Audio Engineering Society, and the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives—where he is a member of the Technical Committee. He is co-author of the report, Sound Directions: Best Practices for Audio Preservation.
