PCAN welcomes press releases and news stories about preservation endeavors.  Help us put you “in the news” — pcaneditors at gmail dot com. 

The audiovisual archive, which includes 20 years of WSLS news stories broadcast from 1951 to 1971, is expected to become an invaluable resource for historical researchers, documentary filmmakers and educators, who are now able to access the diverse collection. According to a Library of Congress estimate, less than 10 percent of local news film from this time period survives.
