The INPUT Archive was created in 1994, as a result of the agreement signed on 20 May 1994 between UPF and INPUT. The Archive has a collection of the programs (in VHS, Betacam and DVD format) screened at the annual conferences of INPUT, and documents associated with the organization of these conferencies, which can be searched through the library catalog. The Archive has a complete collection from 1994 onwards. The collection is not complete for previous conferences, although the Archive do try to get hold of the missing tapes. This documentary collection has been stored and available for consultating by those engaged in the study of television since 1994 at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra Library, at the Poblenou Campus Library.
There is also available a database including information about more than 3500 programs screened since 1978, first year of the INPUT conferences. This database is an online version of the information included in the printed catalogs of the annual conferences, usually known as "INPUT Bibles".
The Archive is a reference tool aimed at the TV professional community (producers, directors, writers, commissioning editors.) and the academic community (professors, researchers, students). It includes the tapes with TV programs from all over the world that INPUT selected for their innovative value, their courage in addressing difficult topics or their willingness to explore uncharted TV territory. INPUT's motto ("Television in the public interest") is reflected in these programs in that they take the viewer as a citizen, not as a consumer.
