Historic films to be digitized

Special Collections is excited to participate in the California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP), a grant funded project that is administered by the California Preservation Program.

We nominated sixteen films from our collection to be digitized as part of the project. The films, which focus on California history, feature Northern California locations and UC Davis campus activities as well as topics such as water issues and native plants. The digitized films, which will be hosted on the Internet Archive as part of the California Light and Sound Collection, should be available during Summer 2014. Please stay tuned until then when we’ll unveil these newly digitized films.
