The SITI Living Archive
The SITI Living Archive will be accessible in two forms: the physical archive housed at The Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute (TRI) at The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Digital Archive, which is available now and is an easily accessible resource to the field. The digital archive is a work-in-progress, as we continue to add content and refine the collection. This archive is made possible by funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Howard Gilman Foundation, the Mellon Foundation, and the New York Community Trust as well as many generous individual donors.
