The National Recording Preservation Foundation (NRPF) promotes the preservation of and public awareness about recorded audio history. We work with public and nonprofit archives throughout the United Staets to celebrate and preserve cultures of sound and amplify shared audio heritage.
Without action and dedicated resources, unique and irreplaceable audio heritage may be lost. We gather data and reports to inform audio preservation policy.
The NRPF has awarded over a quarter of a million dollars to support the digitization and stewardship of at-risk audio collections.
