Welcome to our blog!

At Michigan State University, the Media Preservation unit collaborates with librarians, archivists, and staff across the MSU Libraries, University Archives, and Vincent Voice Library to preserve a wide variety of audiovisual and born-digital collections; ranging from wax cylinders to floppy disks. We survey and inventory materials, develop media preservation policy to direct our work, and manage digitization efforts. To read more in-depth histories of the formats we care for, you can search our Media Formats tag.
