Tulane Music Library Works Toward Restoration

Authored by: 
Produced for: 

When floodwaters inundated the basement of Tulane University's Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, the extensive collection of audio and video recordings — many rare or irreplaceable — were entirely lost.

Music librarian Lenny Bertrand joins Alison on Street Talk to discuss the painstaking restoration process the collection's salvageable print materials are going through, the library's efforts to replace the lost audiovisual collection, and the challenges of teaching music without the collection.
