A growing amount of Mount Sinai records of permanent historical value are created and managed digitally. The Arthur H. Aufses, Jr. MD Archives strives to collect records created in digital format and to make its existing holdings available digitally.
Materials reflected in the Archives are historical. As such, they may contain language and references that are inappropriate, including racial or sexual stereotypes that are not consistent with the positions, norms, and values of the Mount Sinai Health System community. These have been retained in our online collections in order to fully represent the materials in their original context.
The Mount Sinai Digital Repository is a centralized online application for the management and preservation of digital archival records in a wide variety of file formats. It includes both born-digital records and scanned copies of analog archival holdings. The Archives also maintains a separate secure repository for the management of restricted electronic records. Contact the Archives if you have digital records that you are interested in depositing in the Repository.
The Mount Sinai Health System Image Database is a catalog of historic Mount Sinai Health System images dating back to the mid-1800s. Images can be searched by keyword. To request a high-resolution, non-watermarked copy of an image, please contact the Archives.
Digitized Audio Visual Material
The Archives holds a wide collection of historic film and video recordings dating back to the 1930s, including promotional and training films as well as recorded events. Many of these items have been digitized and made available for streaming on our Digitized AV Material page.
Oral Histories and Sound Recordings
The Aufses Archives has a large collection of recordings of interviews, events, meetings, and lectures that date from the 1960s to the present day. Most of these are sound recordings, but there are also videotapes. On these pages you will find transcripts of the recordings as well as a link to the sound or video files, if they exist.
