Digitization is changing our world! CDs to MP3s. Road maps to GPS. Books to e-books. Historical documents such as Federal Census records have been digitized.

 

Current magazines, newspapers and journals are now available in digital format.

However, the digitization of older past issues of magazines and journals has not kept pace – especially in the musical world.

 

But that’s beginning to change. The American Organ Institute at the University of Oklahoma School of Music announced this week that their students have launched a crowdfunding  campaign to begin digitizing the American Theatre Organ Journal -  a more than 60-year-old publication.

 

You can read about the project (and make a donation if you so desire) at https://thoussandsstrong.ou.edu/project/6832.

 

Hopefully this project will induce other groups to digitize The Diapason and The American Organist.
