10. Special running costs

As for ethnology recordings, added expenditure must be anticipated for a linguistic sound archive because of the remoteness of the field locations. In budgeting attention should be paid to travel expenses, the maintenance and capital cost of four-wheel drive vehicles, caravans, camping equipment and so on. Even if the collectors are not on the staff, the archive may need to supply and service them with tape and tape recorders. This may result in air freight and insurance costs as well as impinging on the technician's other duties.

The staff of the archive should keep abreast of current developments in their field of expertise. Budgeting, therefore, should allow for their participation in appropriate national and international conferences.
