Abstract

The goal of this project was to preserve WPI's 16mm film collection as well as gauge student interest in a WPI film studies program. We discuss the method we used for transferring the seventy-six films to digital video cassettes (DVC) and the problems we encountered. A student survey was used to measure interest in a film program, and the results are analyzed. We also explored the copyright issues involved and possible solutions.
