C-SPAN (Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network) has gifted its organizational records and historical archive to the George Mason University Libraries. C-SPAN has also committed funding for a two-year project relating to the materials, which will encompass processing, physical and intellectual organization, selective digitization and construction of a scholarly research portal.
The C-SPAN collection comprises historically significant, unique and unpublished materials including both physical and digital records. Other materials include outreach and educational files, photographs, clippings and memorabilia. The libraries’ scholarly research portal will provide links to C-SPAN’s video library — its archive of televised programs — thus establishing connections between C-SPAN’s history and its public programming.
