The digitization and enhanced cataloging of 11,000 hours of news specials broadcast by national news networks from 1968 to 2003.

The project will digitize and enhance the cataloging for Vanderbilt Television News Archive’s collection of national news special programs recorded off-air between 1968 and 2003. The scope of the project includes content on about 11,000 hours of ¾-inch U-Matic videotape that will be transferred to MPEG-2 digital format. The Library of Congress will receive copies of the files for long-term preservation. Access to this collection will be enhanced through descriptive cataloging. While portions of this collection have previously been cataloged, some parts have not or have only brief records. The project will employ methodologies, personnel, and equipment currently in use for digitizing the Archive’s collection of evening news broadcasts.
