Unlock the Spark!
Help us preserve Sun Devils' greatest moments in ASU sports history. Support the digitization of hundreds of hours of film footage spanning decades. The need to digitize is urgent, as the media format these films live in is nearing end of life. Help make our ASU sports heritage accessible online and free to all.
- $25 funds the digitization of a single VHS tape.
- $50 funds the digitization of one hour of broadcast-quality Betacam videotape.
- $200 funds the cleaning, repair and digitization of one hour of motion picture film.
ASU Library acquired hundreds of historic motion picture films and videos from Sun Devil Athletics in 1997, beginning an intensive period of collecting sports videos from the Pac-12, ASU coaches and staff, players and alumni. Just 12 of these films have been digitized.
With your support, we can make all of these films available online to view and share.
Help us remember Sun Devil Men's Basketball 1972-1986, including the great Ned Wulk years, and experience the evolution of women's sports at ASU, featuring golfer Grace Park and highlighting the early career of ASU Coach Charli Turner Thorne.
We've got the history. Now, help us unlock it.
