The winners of the 2013 Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research have been posted at: http://www.arsc-audio.org/awards/awards.html

Begun in 1991, the awards are presented to authors and publishers of books, articles, liner notes, and monographs, to recognize outstanding published research in the field of recorded sound. In giving these awards, ARSC recognizes outstanding contributions, encourages high standards, and promotes awareness of superior works. Two awards may be presented annually in each category -- one for best history and one for best discography. Certificates of Merit are presented to runners-up of exceptionally high quality. The 2013 Awards for Excellence honor works published in 2012.

The winners will be acknowledged at the awards ceremony at the 2014 ARSC conference in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Additionally, a Lifetime Achievement Award and Award for Distinguished Service to Historical Recordings are also presented annually: http://www.arsc-audio.org/awards/people.html

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods.
