PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION OF PEDAGOGIC UTILITY OF THE ARCHIVE OF HISPANIC LITERATURE ON TAPE. FINAL REPORT.
CLINE, HOWARD F.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE POSSIBLE PEDAGOGICAL UTILIZATION OF THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ARCHIVE OF HISPANIC LITERATURE ON TAPE WHICH CONTAINS, AS OF JUNE 1962, ORIGINAL RECORDINGS IN SPANISH, PORTUGUESE, CATALAN, AND FRENCH OF THE VOICES OF 218 WRITERS READING SOME 2,800 LITERARY WORKS. PROCEDURES TAKEN TO ENCOURAGE LONG-TERM UTILITY OF THE ARCHIVE INCLUDED DESCRIBING, TRANSCRIBING, AND CLASSIFYING ALL THE ITEMS, PREPARING REFERENCE COPIES OF ALL MASTER TAPES, REVIEWING INVENTORIES, AND SETTING UP A FULLY INDEXED WORKING GUIDE TO THE ARCHIVE. IN ADDITION, AN INQUIRY WAS MADE TO WHICH 96 SPECIALISTS REPRESENTING 77 INSTITUTIONS RESPONDED, INDICATING THEIR INTEREST IN THE PROJECT. RESULTS OF THE SURVEY SUGGEST THAT THE ARCHIVE CAN BE A HIGHLY USEFUL RESOURCE FOR TEACHING LITERATURE AND LINGUISTICS, AND PUBLIC USE IS ENCOURAGED. (SS)
