Occupation of Alcatraz Collection

The San Francisco Bay Area Television Archives presents The Occupation of Alcatraz Collection: http://diva.sfsu.edu/collections/sfbatv/2589

Established in 1982, the TV Archive preserves over 4000 hours of newsfilm, documentaries and other programs produced locally in the Bay Area and Northern California between 1939-2005. It is part of SF State Library's Department of Special Collections.

The archive is currently working on a federally funded project to digitize, preserve and make available over 100 hours of 16mm film from our collection. We are also collaborating with KQED to make another 60 hours of civil rights related material available, as part of the American Archives Pilot Program.

Eventually all of this unique footage will be made exclusively available to view online in DIVA.

Users may not download the compressed MPEG-4 viewing files in DIVA, due to copyright restrictions. Please contact resident film archivist Alex Cherian if you require access to higher quality master footage: Email: acherian@sfsu.edu / Tel: 415-817-4261

The San Francisco Bay Area Television Archive is a collection maintained by the Leonard Library.
