Meeting Videotapes: Texas Chapter (ARSC)

The Texas Chapter of ARSC (the Association of Recorded Sound Collections) has an ongoing program of videotaping the formal presentations at many of our quarterly meeting. We make no claim that these tapes are of professional quality, but they portray a fairly good reproduction fo the actual events. In a couple of instances, reproduction is sub-par, but this is indicated in the description below.
