Introducing: American History in Video

We're excited to announce our newest database, American History in Video. This collection of streaming video includes commercial and governmental newsreels, archival footage, public affairs footage, and documentaries. The collection now includes over 1470 titles, including new documentaries from PBS, equaling approximately 460 hours.

American History in Video is produced by Alexander Street Press, which is also the publisher behind one of my favorite Carmichael databases, Classical Music Library. The Flash player is needed to watch the video in this collection and access is restricted to members of the Montevallo community. Should you have questions about how to use this online collection for research or in the classroom, please contact us.
