Audio-Visual Archives

 

Advocates

The Advocates for the Audio-Visual Archives at the University of Kentucky is a support group for the Audio-Visual Archives. Co-chaired by Al Smith and Len Press, the Advocates were established in 1998.

The Role of the Advocates for AVA at UK:

  • Explore how the Audio-Visual Archives at the University of Kentucky should preserve and provide access to the non-print media which documents the history of Kentucky.
  • Identify fundraising opportunities and funding sources that will enable the Audio-Visual Archives to become a viable and active media archive.
  • Advise on the resources the Audio-Visual Archives should collect to best document the history of Kentucky and meet the needs of potential patrons.
  • Analyze the capability of the Audio-Visual Archives to document the history of non-print media in Kentucky.
  • Recommend services the Audio-Visual Archives should provide, given the available resources, that would enable it to become a unique presence in the international media community.

Our Mission

Special Collections Research Center is home to UK Libraries' collection of rare books, Kentuckiana, the University Archives, the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, the King Library Press, the Bert T. Combs Appalachian Collection, and the Wendell H. Ford Public Policy Research Center.

The mission of the Special Collections Research Center is to locate and preserve materials documenting the social, cultural, economic, and political history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Materials are acquired regardless of format and include both primary and secondary sources; Kentuckiana is collected comprehensively. Special Collections maintains the records management program for all records generated by the University and serves as its archival repository for permanent records. As part of the mission, the Special Collections Research Center advances and supports the research, teaching, and scholarship of the University and beyond by preserving and providing access to its holdings.
