Interesting hour about collecting new media with Beryl Graham & Lindsay Taylor (Harris) Common themes emerge of lack of common terms to describe it, how to install it, and what is it you are collecting? E.g. the Harris' acquisition of a Thomson & Craighead work consisted of a memory stick, a certificate and a list of instructions!
