    Abstract:
    Cornell University Library (CUL) is requesting funding to develop a technical framework and associated tools to facilitate enduring access to interactive digital media art with a focus on artworks stored on hard drive, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM. CUL’s Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art will provide the test bed for the study. This collection, recognized as one of the most prominent of its kind in the world, contains thousands of artworks and encompasses a wide variety of formats. We seek funding from NEH of $284,550 for a two-year project. CUL will cost share 42.5% of the total project costs of $495,077. CUL will collaborate with AudioVisual Preservation Solutions, and the project will have an advisory board composed on international leaders in curation, arts, and preservation. The key principle of the project is to leverage existing standards, best practices, and technologies, and to focus on moving theory into practice in a working archival environment.
