Audio materials Signiﬁcant audio holdings from across campus, including ethnographic ﬁeld
collections and documentation of performances within the School of Music.
Audio materials Sound recordings are wonderfully rich primary sources and suffer from a host of
endangered media packages (reels, cassettes, etc.)
Audio materials Unique sound recordings that make up a signiﬁcant and large research collection.
Audio materials We are in the early stages of creating a media (audio and moving image)
preservation program, and digitization of obsolete media (more sound than moving
image at this point) is critical in preserving and accessing these materials.
Digitized special collections Historical and cultural materials in the collections of the Center for Southwest
Research and Special Collections and many other institutions in New Mexico and
across the region.
Digitized special collections Our digitized special collections are numerous, with unique content.
ETDs (electronic theses and dissertations) ETDs are the intellectual output of the university and are thus signiﬁcant.
ETDs (electronic theses and dissertations) Local student scholarship with limited signiﬁcance for preservation at this time
because we still retain a paper copy of theses and dissertations and send them to
ETDs (electronic theses and dissertations) [No description provided.]
Licensed materials Content we have purchased or licensed from publishers, and for which we have
permission to preserve. This content represents a signiﬁcant investment of resources,
whether ﬁnancial, staff, or technology. It is part of our mission to preserve our
investment in our scholarly resources.
Licensed materials Electronic resources licensed consortially for the ten University of California
campuses through the California Digital Library.
Mass digitized collections 24+ million ﬁles for digitized collections represents more than 15 years’ investment.

microﬁlmed monograph content.
