Abstract: This paper reviews some of the challenges encountered while assessing the condition of a collection of reel-to-reel and cassette audiotapes. In November, 2003, Rick Taylor and Jim Thurn conducted a survey of the University of Texas at Austin Folklore Center Archives. A statistical sample of the collection was evaluated for signs of deterioration. The absence of a body of literature describing audio surveys necessitated the creation of a glossary of terms and not a little bit of experiential education. Findings and recommendations were documented in a Preservation Needs Assessment report.
