Videos – We have several dozen videos in 8mm with trips and presentations from 1998-2004
Yahoo Groups – Groups from early 2000. Is there an easy way of bringing the archives to a new platform?
Planeta.com Articles – Articles from 1994. Slowly bringing them on board the new platform. Not so much digitizing as it is transferring to a new format and platform.
