Referrals - Recovering Analog and Digital Data (RADD)

The RADD (Recovering Analog and Digital Data) is a collection of hardware and software in the SLIS Library designed for digitizing at-risk analog materials as well as recovering data from at-risk digital media. Class projects and student practicums involving RADD enable students to learn multimedia digitization, media archaeology, and digital forensics skills while helping secure real-world information stores for the future.


RADD is first and foremost a teaching machine. SLIS course-related uses receive priority. After that, it is open to the UW-Madison community.


RADD can digitize several common types of audiovisual materials, if they are in good condition. It can also attempt data recovery from several types of obsolete digital-storage media.
