Campus-AAR is a digital environment project for the production, description and publication of scientific audio-visual archives. Its aim is to develop a roll-out software infrastructure and an array of terminology resources allowing a holder of archives to upload, analyse, exhibit, republish and research audio-visual resources, and make them inter-operable, adopting a “scholarly” approach for an audience of researchers, teaching staff and students.

The CCSD is a partner of the Campus-AAR consortium.
