Our history is at risk

Indiana University Bloomington is home to at least 3 million sound and moving image recordings, photos, documents, and artifacts. Well over half a million of these special holdings are part of audio, video, and film collections, and a large number of them are one of a kind. These invaluable cultural and historical gems, and many more, may soon be lost. Forever.

A solution

Indiana University Bloomington has organized a comprehensive effort to preserve its vast audio, video, and film holdings, the Media Preservation Initiative. Please explore the links above and the documents below to learn more.
