Recently the Archives and Special Collections initiated a project to convert the 16mm movie films in the Educational Media Film Collection to digital formats. We hope to digitally copy 5-10 films per year.
These movie films were originally part of the Educational Media Center on the USD campus. Some of Ed Media’s 16mm films were transferred to the Archives and Special Collections when the film library disbanded in the early 1990s. Many of the films were produced for or by The University of South Dakota, and many of these are by Sanford Gray.
The finding aid for this collection has recently been updated and is located on the archives web page at http://www.usd.edu/library/upload/EducationalMediaFilmCollection.pdf.
