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.
WHO MAY USE RADD?
RADD is first and foremost a teaching machine. SLIS course-related uses receive priority. After that, it is open to the UW-Madison community.
WHAT DOES RADD DO?
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.
