This article touches on what makes Animation Resources so unique… Digital archives are being pioneered largely by for-profit organizations like Spotify and YouTube. But who knows if today’s digital giant will even exist in a couple of decades? Traditional libraries and universities are slow to embrace a non-tangible curator driven model. Archivists and scholars who are truly interested in curating and collecting digital media should be banding together and taking a proactive approach- creating their own 501(c)(3) nonprofit groups and establishing ongoing self-sustainable programs. Because no one else is going to lay the foundation for that if the people who care about it don’t do it themselves.
