Internet Archive Launches “NSA-Issues TV News Clip Library”

Here’s something new and quite timely from Brewster Kahle and his team at the Internet Archive.

New Today (October 21): NSA-Issues TV News Clip Library

In Their Own Words From the Internet Archive Blog:

The experimental, Chrome and Safari only, library launches today with more than 700 chronologically ordered television citations drawn from the Archive’s television news research service. The TV quotes can be browsed by rolling over clip thumbnails, queried via transcripts and sorted for specific speakers. Citation links, context, links to source broadcasters and options to borrow can be explored by following the More/Borrow links on each thumbnail.
