Retrodigitization of audiovisual media

Completed project

Aim of the project

The aim is to digitize older audiovisual items of the ETH-Bibliothek.

Description of the project

The ETH-Bibliothek has around 1,000 audio and film documents. These include in-house productions such as introductory and farewell lectures and the Pauli lectures as well as items from the Archives and Private Collections. In collaboration with Multimedia Services (MMS) within IT Services of the ETH Zurich, the older items are being digitized. MMS is providing the technical expertise (digitization workflow, database and backup), and the ETH-Bibliothek is responsible for defining and maintaining the metadata. Digitization can save the original media from being completely lost.
