LAB sliderLibrary of American Broadcasting

The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation

The mission of the Library of American Broadcasting is one of preservation and access. We strive to serve as part of a "collective memory" for an industry whose very nature is ephemeral. New technology and new formats replace the old, and with the future constantly becoming the present, there seems little time available to dwell on what is past.

Much of the history of the broadcasting industry has been preserved, but much work remains to be done. The safekeeping of the documentary evidence of the most influential cultural force of the twentieth century is a job worth doing, and the Library of American Broadcasting is dedicated to help in that task.
