Historical moving images and audio from the California Audiovisual Preservation Project
In partnership with twenty two libraries, archives and museums, the California Preservation Program is undertaking a project to provide digitization and access services for historic California audiovisual recordings to serve as a prototype for an ongoing program. This database provides "glimpses and whispers" of our state's rich audiovisual heritage- there is much more to be mined and discovered. We must save our audiovisual heritage before it is too late; analog recordings are threatened by fragile physical condition, format obsolescence and the lack of playback equipment.
The Project gathers best archival practices for moving image and sound preservation and establishes low-cost, practical, standards to help collecting organizations move from the analog age to the digital age. Access is provided by the Internet Archive for teaching, research and study. Storage of files for long-term preservation is provided by the California Audiovisual Preservation Project.
Funding was received from the California State Library, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this collection do not necessarily reflect those of the funders.
