The Dreaming Spools project is a self-contained media management project looking at archive footage of Oxford in the past, finding the stories of people and place which can be used for the future to engage the public and promote the university to new audiences. The project will be working with archive film from Oxford’s own collections and liaising with other agencies such as museums and foundations who hold archive materials about the University’s people and places.
The project is internal to the Educational Media Services team, part of IT Services and our aim is discover, catalogue and present film online for re-use and to share the culture of Oxford.
