Read the full story from Hyperallergic:
“Basically, the braille music collection — the largest in the world —was the only collection not digitized at NLS when the Library initiated its business continuity plan,” John Hanson, head of the Music Section at NLS, told Hyperallergic. The initiative assures that all aspects of LOC could be sustained even if there was a major disaster, whether a building fire or other catastrophe. “With digital files archived safely, services to patrons wanting music scores could be continued by embossing a new copy of whatever was wanted, or sending the digital file itself to a patron with the hardware and software to read it.”
