Abstract

The University of Maryland's Special Collections is proud to present a new exhibit entitled Saving College Radio: WMUC Past, Present and Future, located in the Maryland Room Gallery at Hornbake Library. The title reflects a two-pronged approach in which "saving" refers to our efforts to archive this historical collection, as well as the importance of maintaining support for the campus station. The variety of materials in the WMUC collection is extensive, and includes photographs, fliers, 'zines, vertical files, correspondences and audiovisual formats. The Digital Conversion and Media Reformatting (DCMR) department has been integrating standard procedures with innovative approaches in order to preserve the content and make it accessible to patrons and alumni. This poster will illustrate how these practices have facilitated a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the campus radio station, while improving the UMD Libraries' standards of preservation and digital stewardship.
