The Web Media Collective Project

About the Web Media Collective

Preserving human knowledge, together.
The Web Media Collective (WMC) was established in 1998 to help faculty organize, preserve and share their life's work -- work in the form of images, video, audio, animations, CAD drawings, etc. [more...]


The WMC is a membership group -- members participate in the collective in a variety of ways. What is learned from one project is passed along to the others, be it a piece of code or a way to address policy matters. Here is an overview of the member projects in Humanities, Arts and Architecture at Ohio State.

Member Projects
Every piece of media--books, TV programs, music, photographs, art, software, etc.--captures a particular society's knowledge and values in a form that can be passed on to future generations.

This project is aimed at preserving these 'knowledge artifacts' and making them accessible so that future generations can gain a deeper understanding of the human experience.
