University Archives - News and Public Affairs Videotape Directory

This directory lists news reports, promotional videos, and public information segments produced by the University of Florida's Office of News and Public Affairs and its predecessors from 1977 through 1989. Many of the news reports were broadcast on WUFT-TV. The collection also includes regular special interest presentations such as the reports on Florida's economy.  The tapes listed are only those transferred to the University Archives. For other and more recent materials, please contact the university's public affaris office.

The earliest News and Public Affairs Videos were recorded in 3/4" u-matic. Segments often were rerecorded on different tapes. No attempt was made to edit duplicate content when the tapes were reformatted by the Archives. For some tapes, tape logs were available and the dates given are exact. In most cases, though, dates are approximations based on tape content. Many of the videos are available for viewing as DVDs in the Grand Reading Room of Smathers Library. If you have questions, please contact the University Archivist.
