The Duke University Archives works with the Duke University Libraries' Digital Collections to digitize and provide online access to materials from our collections.
- Duke Football and Basketball Game Film and Video Collection
The Duke University Archives preserves 16mm film and videotape created by the coaching staffs of the Duke football and men's basketball programs. This site contains descriptions of the film and videotape shot, whether an access copy exists, and, in some cases, the physical condition of the original film.
Please visit our exhibits page for other digitized items, including selected photographs and documents.
