The history of the University of Rochester is not just found in texts and photographs. Our past speaks and moves—it marches, sings, performs, inaugurates, and commences in hundreds of audio and visual recordings dating from the 1920s to the present.

Recorded on albums, audiotapes, films, and videotapes, not only is our history contained by a remarkable variety of formats, but the formats themselves represent a century of the technology of recording, capturing, and transmitting sound and motion.

For almost 20 years, the library has been digitizing these recordings. The exhibition showcases the original media that preserve our landmark and everyday events along with supporting documents; an online companion website enables viewers to experience the recordings, and includes additional materials.
