RODRIGUEZ-RESENDIZ, Perla Olivia. Digital preservation of sound recordings. Investig. bibl [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.68, pp.173-195. ISSN 2448-8321.

Because thousands of sounds documents are lost every day as a result of the fragility and deterioration of recording supports, and the obsolescence of analog recording and playback equipment, the preservation of the sound archives is at a critical point in its history. Currently, the transfer of analog content to digital platforms is the only way to guarantee the survival of sound heritage. Therefore, the preservation of digital audio files constitutes a long-term safeguard that will eventually replace analog backup methods in order to preserve the world's audio heritage.
