PROGRAM: Discovery Virginia

Presented by:

Subject: Digital Humanities, History Audience: All

VFH has launched a project to digitize and preserve the thousands of valuable assets it has produced in its forty year history, ranging from rare musical recordings to oral histories and grant-funded films. Called Discovery Virginia, this institutional repository will give users a single web-based point of access to digital content across its programs. A major part of this project is the preservation of audio and video content stored on old media and in danger of being lost forever.
