As part of the Special Collections and University Archives Collection Department of UCF's Library, the Home Movie Archive seeks to collect 8 mm, Super 8 mm, and 16 mm home movies, captured mostly from late 1940s through the end of the 1970s, which have cultural, historical, scientific, or artistic significance, with a focus on Central Florida and its residents.
The aim of creating a Home Movie Archive is to ensure that the valuable social and historical information, captured by ordinary citizens, be preserved as part of the Special Collections and University Archives permanent holdings-a non-circulating collection whose use is confined to the Special Collections reading/research room.
The UCF Libraries will administer, permanently house, preserve, inventory, process, maintain, and make available a Home Movie Archive to the public, researchers, and scholars, in accordance with the UCF Libraries' established policies and procedures.
