The Libraries are testing a new electronic resource this fall. The Vanderbilt Television Archives - available on a trial basis through December 25th - provides a searchable index of television news broadcasts back to 1968. Researchers can use this resource identify television news programs and segments that document important world events.
Video from CNN is available online through the Archives web site. All other broadcasts (ABC, CBS, etc.) can be borrowed - either in customized compilation of video clips or entire broadcasts. Lending is direct to individuals, who must pay the associated fees for the service.
To use the Vanderbilt Television Archives, visit the Libraries' database page at: http://www.libraries.wvu.edu/databases/
Faculty and student comments are welcomed. You'll find the feedback form link on the left of the Databases page.
