Finding Recordings

Naropa University Archives on Content DM

Naropa University is funding an ongoing effort to preserve all institutional audio and video. This continually growing resource contains approximately 2,000 audio recordings and once complete will contain over 11,000 audio and video recordings from our institutional archives. Enter the Naropa University Archives.

The Naropa audio tape collection consists of over six thousand tapes of events at Naropa University over its forty year life span. These tapes record seminal events in the world of education and the arts, including important writers, teachers, and religious leaders. The collection grows every year, as new conferences, the Summer Writing Program, and visiting faculty workshops and lectures are recorded and added to the collections.
