University of Northern Iowa raising money to preserve football films

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Rod Library's Special Collections and University Archives and Digital Scholarship Unit are partnering with UNI Athletics to raise money to digitize and preserve films of past UNI football games.

These University of Northern Iowa organization plan on accomplishing this through the UNI football films PAWprint campaign.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $10,000 by 11:59 p.m. Thursday, October 5th. 

The films can only bee seen in their original format, which are rapidly deteriorating. Digitization allows for the unique, rare materials and memories to be preserved.

“By digitizing these films, we are making this athletic history and these important moments in UNI student life available in a modern format that everyone can access online,” said Jaycie Vos, special collections coordinator and university archivist.

The PAWprint program provides student organizations and members of the faculty and staff with the training, tools and support needed to put on a successful fundraising campaign.
