This issue of the Journal focuses on archiving and preservation of sound. The mission of the AES Technical Council's Technical Committee on Archiving, Restoration and Digital Libraries is to "address the problems of long-term storage of audio media and of the information contained therein." This task is interdisciplinary by nature. Those who are involved or are being recruited into this task speak many languages and possess diverse perspectives. Our "clients" are musicians, librarians, broadcasters, and niche-market collectors. Our colleagues range from chemists to material and computer scientists. Current "users" are individuals and groups from around the world; tomorrow's users we will leave to your imagination.
