Indiana University will spend $15 million to create accessible digital copies of "video, recorded music and other irreplaceable material" created at the institution since its founding in 1820, President Michael A. McRobbie announced Tuesday during his State of the University address. The online archive, which McRobbie said will make materials "instantly and inexpensively available in digital form at any time not only to students, scholars and scientists throughout IU, but across the country and around the world,” will be available by the institution's bicentenary in 2020.
