MAINSTREET PIQUA VIDEOTAPE COLLECTION

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The MainStreet Piqua Videotape Collection was accessioned into the Piqua Public Library Archives and Special Collections on 29 April 2016.  The collection was the result of a donation of 124 videotapes from MainStreet Piqua, Inc., Lorna Swisher, Executive Director.  The collection contains valuable information on businesses in Piqua and events in Piqua in the years 1993 to 2011.  The videotapes were made to be presented on the Piqua local cable channel 10 and later channel 5 Access Piqua Television Association (APTA).  With the advent of the formation of the Western Ohio Television Consortium, which took control of channel 5 local access and began broadcasting in the digital format, the VHS tapes in this collection became obsolete and thus were given to the Library to archive and preserve.

 

The collection is available for viewing by the public in the Local History Department of the Library.  The ownership of the collection has been deeded to the Piqua Public Library.  The Piqua Public Library also owns the copyright to all the locally produced videotapes in this collection.  These tapes do not circulate and therefore cannot be checked out; they must be viewed in the Library.  Other than this, there is no restriction on the use of the content of these tapes.

 

The MainStreet Piqua Videotape Collection was processed and archived into the Piqua Public Library Archives and Special Collections in May 2016 by Gary D. Meek, Local History Coordinator.
