The ability to watch, and more importantly listen, to actors and people on film began in the 1920s, when sound film became extremely popular. Since then digital preservationists have struggled to maintain the quality of audio attached to video files. AEO-Light addresses this problem by preserving audio attached to digitally scanned video and images files. The South Carolina Moving Image Research Collections and the Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute, both of the University of South Carolina, partnered with the National Endowment for the Humanities to make AEO-Light available to the public as an open source tool.

Mukurtu (MOOK-oo-too) is a free, open-source content management system for digital heritage materials. The project was born from the needs of the Warumungu Aboriginal community who wanted an archival platform that allowed them to organize, manage and share their digital cultural heritage in their own way, on the own terms. For example, the Warumugu Aboriginal community observe cultural traditions that determine how they share their cultural materials and knowledge. Designed collaboratively by indigenous groups and academic researchers, the project empowers communities to share their cultural heritage online with their tales, knowledge and cultural artifacts. Mukurtu further allows these communities to organize, describe and share digital heritage within their communities in culturally appropriate ways. This allows members from different communities to contribute content in their unique ways to educate the world about their respective communities. Mukurtu is an incredible resource that supports the unique needs of indigenous libraries, archives, and museums as they seek to preserve and share their digital heritage.
