Archive Catalog


About our online catalog

This online catalog represents a portion of the American Poetry Archives 4,000+ hour collection, and centers on nearly 2,000 original video-recordings made from 1973–2002. This listing is provided as a public service, and indication of the extent of the American Poetry Archives collection.

Not included here are most of our early audio recordings, 1954–1973 (many of which are available online at POETRY CENTER DIGITAL ARCHIVE) and later digital video-recordings, made subsequent to 2002.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of technical issues involving ongoing access to fragile original master-tapes, frequently in antiquated formats, many of the recordings listed here are not readily available for general public access. While we are in the process of migrating our extensive collection online—a multi-year project—public access to recordings not yet available online must be determined on a case-by-case basis.

For specific inquiries contact the Poetry Center.
