Although analogue phonograph recordings (LPs) have long shelf lives, there are many reasons for initiating research into proper procedures for their digital preservation.

This paper describes the digitization process for building an online collection of LPs and the procedure for creating the ground-truth data, which is essential for developing an automated metadata and content capturing system. The workflow development involves several steps: hardware acquisition, installation, and configuration; software installation and development; copyright and rights management; metadata scheme design; analogueto-digital audio conversion; audio track separation; image scanning of record l...
