The final report produced as a result of the Illinois Campus Media Census. This 72 page document covers the background, methodologies, results, recommendations and outcomes resulting from a 3 year project designed to determine the extent of audiovisual holdings across the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus.
The study identified 408,492 physical audiovisual assets in 101 campus units, the majority of which represent obsolete or obsolescent “legacy” formats being stored in conditions detrimental to their long-term usability. As a result, this report recommends prioritizing campus-wide planning for a sustainable infrastructure for the efficient, cost-effective preservation of valued media content.
