American History in Video

I recently came across this new site called American History in Video.

American History in Video provides the largest and richest collection of video available online for the study of American history, with 2,000 hours and more than 5,000 titles on completion. The collection allows students and researchers to analyze historical events, and the presentation of historical events over time, through commercial and governmental newsreels, archival footage, public affairs footage, and important documentaries. This release includes over 1260 titles, equaling approximately 420 hours.

This is a great resource for American History. Enjoy!

Library of Congress YouTube Channel

I have long been a fan of the Library of Congress and in particular their digital initiatives. It is amazing to go and find images of rare maps or photographs.

And now, there is the Library of Congress YouTube Channell at: http://tr.youtube.com/user/LibraryOfCongress.

Here, you will find:

Timeless treasures and contemporary presentations from the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. As the world’s preeminent reservoir of knowledge, we are the steward of millions of recordings dating from the earliest Edison films to the present. In addition, we sponsor events, lectures and concerts that are free and open to the public.

This is an excellent discovery and learning tool. I am still having fun checking out old videos!
