Archival Audio Materials Relocated as Capital Master Plan Work Continues
A view of the Audio Library, with shelves containing audio materials on analog formats and a reel-to-reel audio recorder/playback equipment. The audio materials and equipment are packed and moved to a temporary place, as the space is reclaimed for the UN Capital Master Plan (CMP) renovation work. The United Nations holds a collection of over 30,000 unique historic audio recordings in various formats - 1/4" magnetic tapes, 1/8" audio cassettes, mini-cassettes, Mini Discs, CDs, DAT tapes, vinyl and shellac discs. The more recent recordings are on digital format.
