The City Club Forums Collection in the Cleveland Memory Project
The City Club of Cleveland and Cleveland State University’s Michael Schwartz Library have teamed up to make over 400 City Club video programs available online, in Phase I of an on-going project. Spanning the period 2004 to 2010, these programs are available from the Cleveland Memory Project and the City Club’s archives, joining a previous project to digitize the audio-only program tapes. Additions to the collection include videos of speeches from Martin Luther King III, Dr. Michael Schwartz, John Glenn, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Madeleine Albright, and Marian Wright Edelman.
Funding for this project came from the Cleveland Foundation, whose $88,000 grant was used to digitize the entire collection of 1,917 video programs, to catalog 1,324 of them and to mount online the 419 programs that were already closed captioned in compliance with ADA access regulations. Future phases of this project will seek funding to caption the remaining 1,500 programs and mount them in Cleveland Memory.
The currently-available programs can be viewed at http://www.ClevelandMemory.org/CityClub/.
