boldreynard Tech: Advice On Field Recording Please. (50) RE: Tech: Advice On Field Recording Please. 11 Sep 03


The Library of Congress' American Folklife Center has a section devoted to field techniques. It may be found here.

There are what seem to be very helpful "model forms" you can follow to log where when how etc. you made the recordings, as well as advice as to how you should go about making your collection.

There is also a great picture within the "how to" section of the type of equipment the Lomaxes had to use. It really puts things in perspective.
