Media Census

Be part of an important on-campus census and preserve Cornell history.

The Cornell AudioVisual Preservation team has launched a Web-based census to gather data on ‘at-risk’ campus audio-visual materials languishing in departments’ cupboards, shoe boxes under desks or as digital files living on isolated desktops.

If you know of orphaned media that should be examined for potential preservation, take the group’s Web survey. Representatives from the team will follow up with you to assess the condition, format stability, uniqueness and scholarly value of materials. Survey data will also inform Cornell’s comprehensive preservation strategy.

The census is funded by Cornell University Library and Cornell Information Technologies.
