This DVD was the first archival disc of material published online by the Internet-First University Press as an open access resource and contained about 6,000 pages of formatted text in portable document files, more than 11 hours of small image Quicktime video and more than 8 hours of lectures. This DVD requires a DVD-capable computer with (Quicktime Player and Acrobat Reader: both of which are available for Macintosh and Windows computers via the Internet. (Version 7 of each was used to test the disc.)

The disc contains 33 both new and reprinted books intended for the classroom or for outreach that deal with the sciences, technologies, humanities and histories : especially history related to Cornell. The working papers for a workshop on scholarly publishing are included as well as six volumes of an open access journal (CIGR).

The videos feature famous Comellians - including tributes to President Emeritus Dale Corson and the late Nobel Laureate Hans Bethe. In addition to the tribute, the Corson Symposium materials include a Gala Banquet and audio for three half days of lectures concerning the future of the research university. In addition to the tribute to Bethe, more than 4 hours and 22 minutes of lectures and conversations on topics ranging from the German Atomic Bomb Project to the early history of solid state physics. Discussants included Robert Wilson, Victor Weisskopf, Thomas Powers, Kurt Gottfried and David Mermin. Corson was named to the Cornell Center for Materials Research Hall of Fame, an event graced by the four living Presidents of Cornell University.

Other videos deal with Antigone, as part of a freshman experience, a public lecture about China by the Honorable Mark Kirk '81, the March 2005 dedication of the Life Sciences Technology Building and instructional materials on chaos by Prof. Strogatz and on the early history of artificial insemination narrated by Prof. Robert Foote.

The collection is completed by two undergraduate journals (The Visible Hand and The Quad) and the abstracts of the CALS undergraduate honors theses for three years.
