Abstract: This C.A.P.E. lecture was presented on 06Dec12 at BTI. The lecture describes the usage of low-­‐cost digital publishing to preserve and to make Cornell’s institutional history more accessible. The lecture outlines issues and principles that guided the creation of The Internet-­‐First University Press and cites its popularity (with more than 1 million downloads of books and videos each year).

Finally a collage of snippets from thirteen of the IFUP videos constitutes our first volume of “Glimpses of Cornell History.”
