Notes

“Spotlight on North Texas,” was a collaborative effort, between the University of North Texas
Libraries (UNT) and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI), to preserve and provide long‐term
digital access to materials related to Denton County’s motion picture histories. Our primary goals were to
(1) provide community members with free digital copies of their records, (2) provide sustainable longterm
digital preservation of digitized materials, (3) and encourage engagement with public history through
community outreach events. We focused on preserving materials related to Denton County’s motion
picture histories including home movies, documents, and photographs. We accomplished our objectives
by hosting two community digitization events, providing unrestricted access to materials on UNT’s Portal
to Texas History and TAMI’s website, and by sharing materials with the community at the 2017 Thin Line
Film Festival.
