Unlocking the Airwaves: Revitalizing an Early Public Radio Collection

The creation of an online research environment for up to 3,300 hours of digital audio files from the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (NAEB) and approximately 120,000 digitized images of the NAEB’s historical paper records.

The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Historical Society proposes to create Unlocking the Airwaves: Revitalizing an Early Public Radio Collection, a curated online reference resource providing integrated access to finding aids, digitized paper collections and transcribed digital audio files relating to the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (NAEB), an historically-significant educational and public broadcasting collection. By coordinating the expertise of archivists, humanities researchers, and digital humanists, the creation of this new resource for humanities research will deliver enhanced access to important, often hidden, collections of archival audiovisual materials.
