The Radio Preservation Task Force is a group that seeks to support the collaborations between faculty researchers and archivists toward the preservation of radio history. It was created by the Library of Congress’s National Recording Preservation Board in 2014 to facilitate preservation of, research on, and educational uses of radio recordings held by archiving institutions and private collectors in the United States. Its members include hundreds of scholars, educators, collectors, librarians, and archivists at universities, libraries, museums, archives, and other heritage organizations throughout the country. The RPTF manages several ongoing projects and initiatives and works in partnership with other research and preservation groups in the US and abroad. Learn more on our LOC webpage.
