The purchase of preservation supplies and environmental monitoring equipment (and training for staff in its use), to help preserve approximately 23,000 film, video, and audio resources. The Archive of Iowa Broadcasting’s holdings include news broadcasts from local radio and television stations, as well as some archival materials. Together, they cover a wide range of political, economic, and cultural developments in Iowa since the 1920s.   

The Archives of Iowa Broadcasting (AIB) contains oral histories, documents, photographs, promotional materials, artifacts and over 23,000 audiovisual recordings dating back to the early 1920s that document the history and development of radio and television in Iowa. These materials provide a wide variety of resources for research related to media and broadcasting, as well as 20th century regional and national social, political and cultural humanities topics. This project would provide equipment and supplies to rehouse the most at-risk items in the AIB’s film collection as well as purchase environmental monitoring equipment and provide training on its use. These tasks address specific concerns raised in a previous collection assessment and will further efforts to stabilize and preserve the AIB’s extensive audiovisual and other holdings for future researchers.

Improved public access for the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting through the cataloging of 28,000 items and digitization of over 2,000 broadcast tapes from KWWL-TV, a flagship public news station in eastern Iowa. The collection documents the history and development of community radio and television in the state and includes oral histories, documents, photographs, and artifacts dating from 1922 to 2007.

The Archives of Iowa Broadcasting (AIB) contains oral histories, documents, photographs, promotional materials, artifacts and over 28,000 audiovisual recordings (1922-2007) that document the history and development of radio and television in Iowa. These represent a unique body of records all too often lost due to the ephemeral nature of original broadcasts and the degradation and obsolescence of the media carriers that captured them. This grant project would create an online media catalog of the more than 28,000 items in the AIB audiovisual collection. The grant would also involve digitization of 2,230 videotapes of broadcast footage from KWWL-TV, a flagship news station in eastern Iowa. Digitizing these materials will allow for their preservation.  The files will be made available online through the media catalog. Creating an online catalog of Iowa Broadcasting materials and beginning to digitize our fragile media holdings are essential to expanding future use of the AIB collection.
