California Light and Sound: The California Audiovisual Preservation Project

The digitization of up to 1,000 audio and moving image recordings dealing with the history and culture of California, held by cultural heritage repositories throughout the state.

The proposed project has two goals: 1) Build the "California Light and Sound" humanities collection (currently 3,000 recordings) by digitizing and providing free online access to 1,000 additional endangered audiovisual recordings of Californiana with national, regional, and local historical significance. 2) Grow the California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP) partnership by adding 20 new California institutions (with audiovisual Californiana) to the existing 77 institutional partners in the Project. The CAVPP provides statewide leadership to facilitate access and accomplish preservation work most individual libraries and archives are unable to undertake. The CAVPP guides institutions through the process, from collection assessment to nomination of titles to selection to description to digitization, and brings to light hidden media collections via the Internet Archive (IA), an online repository that is freely available for non-profit, educational use.
