The Legacy of American Arts, Film and Comedy Secured on the Cloud

Tessella Reports: The Legacy of American Arts, Film and Comedy Secured on the Cloud 

Today it was announced that Emerson College has selected Preservica to safeguard its digital assets. Preservica will make accessible and preserve Emerson’s institutional records, special collections, and The American Comedy Archives.

We collect material related to American comedy and the history of comedy, which spans everything from stand up to television sitcoms, live performances and music. We also have special collections which focus on areas such as journalism, radio, television, theatre and film which we use to facilitate teaching at Emerson. Our archive occupies nearly 1,000 linear feet and holds books, photographs, reels of audio tapes, audio cassettes, over 15,000 video tapes and more than 150 films that constitute our collections.”
