297 Segments of "FIU in View" Available Online

As older audiovisual materials such as U-matic and VHS tapes are degrading and hardware are becoming obsolete, the Special Collections and University Archives (SPCUA) Department has begun the monumental task of preserving the historical audiovisual holdings of the University Archives. SPCUA has over 2,000 audiovisual materials ranging from reel-to-reel to U-matic to VHS to DVD documenting the events, lectures, and history of FIU.

Beginning in the late 1980’s, the Division of University Relations and Development produced FIU in View, sponsored by FIU and produced in cooperation with the Dade County Cable Television Access Project. FIU in View billed itself as “the show that brings you a closer look at Florida International University and the community it serves.” Every month FIU in View produced segments highlighting community events, university programs, and FIU sports reviews. The project was coordinated by Rhia Rae, Digital Archivist, SPCUA. Jean Michel Andre, Sound and Imaging Resources Department, painstakingly digitized and collected metadata for over 100 VHS tapes resulting in 297 streaming videos of FIU in View now available in d-Panther.
