Stumbling Over: Websites

June 9, 2008

Here are some websites that I’ve recently come across. There are a couple video type sites and a couple of reporter/journalism sites.

Archives New Zealand Film Site

Currently has 158 full length videos online for viewing. The ones I spot checked came from the 1942-43 era.

C-SPAN Classroom: Free Resources for Teaching Civics and U.S. Goverment

Primarily designed for middle to high school teachers to use in there classroom. However, with registration you can search and view C-SPAN clips topics that range from the 1st Amendment to campaign coverage.

Includes digital images, texts, video clips and sound recordings related to the performing arts around the world. GloPAD was created by an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant through the Cornell University Library.
