The essential characteristic of digital technology is its archivality: that is, digital technology consists essentially in the storage of information. The ever-increasing capacities of servers and hard-drives allows in parallel an ever-increasing ability to store documents, texts, lectures, videos, and nearly anything which can be represented digitally. The Lyceum Institute takes advantage of this expansive archivality by saving everything–and keeping it well-ordered (in keeping with our principle of ordinare).

Thus, every audio lecture delivered in, whether in a seminar, colloquium, symposium, or otherwise, is recorded and preserved. Similarly, all video seminar discussion sessions are recorded and available to seminar participants, as well as to members at the Advanced and Premium levels.

Additionally, a Resource Archive containing hundreds of curated open source books, articles, and diagrams allows all members access to a wide range of high-quality, well-organized resources.

These archives grow gradually, but continually, as more free resources become available in the increasingly cost-effective digital paradigm. Continual improvements are made to the documents for search and commentary.
