The digitization of 233 audio and moving image recordings pertaining to the history and culture of California in the 20th century, held by archives and libraries throughout the state.

The California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP) proposes to digitize, preserve and make available to the public 233 historically important, unpublished, and seriously endangered analog audio and moving image recordings (over 200 hours or 300,000 feet) contributed by 19 California partner archives and libraries. The "California Light and Sound" collection will support research, teaching, and learning across an array of humanities disciplines. The CAVPP provides statewide leadership to facilitate access and accomplish preservation work most individual archives are unable to undertake. Based on best practices and standards, the CAVPP guides institutions through the process, from nomination of titles to selection to description to digitization, and brings to light hidden media collections via the Internet Archive (IA) and the California Digital Library's Online Archive of California (OAC), online repositories that are available for the purposes of non-profit, educational use.
