In August 2013, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting selected WGBH and the Library of Congress as the permanent stewards of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB), with the mission to identify, preserve, and make accessible the historic record of public media.
The AAPB Project Team is excited to unveil to the public the approximately 2.5 million inventory records created during the American Archive Content Inventory Project (AACIP). To browse the inventory records, visit http://americanarchiveinventory.org/catalog?q=.
This catalog and website will serve as the interim access portal to AAPB inventory records while the AAPB Project Team develops the official AAPB website, which will initially launch in March of 2015 with development continuing through October of 2015. That said, please note that the catalog is a work in progress, and the inventory data is not yet a complete, descriptive catalog record. Just because you don’t find something you’re looking for doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the AAPB Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To stay up-to-date with the progress of the project, visit the AAPB blog at americanarchive.org.
If you are an AAPB contributing organization, please continue to use the AMS to search, edit, and export your records.
