About this Blog: Now See Hear!

What do Fugazi, Louis Armstrong, Jack Benny, Carole King, Buck Owens, Edward R. Murrow, Aretha Franklin, Mary Pickford, Dick Cavett, Carl Sagan and Big Bird have in common? Their work was all captured on film, video, audio disc, wire, tape or CD and preserved by the Library of Congress National Audio-Visual Conservation Center. Now See Hear showcases collections, announces new acquisitions and projects, publicizes public programs, provides information about the Film and Sound Recording Registries, and discusses the procedures and technology being used to describe, preserve, and make accessible our audiovisual heritage.
