Boston Local News Project Funded!

Happy Holidays! Santa came early to the WGBH Media Library and Archives: we’ve been selected for a grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources “Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives” Program to fund our Boston Local News Project! This project, also funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, will be able to officially launch in 2011.

The project, a partnership with the Boston Public Library, Northeast Historic Film, and Cambridge Community Television, will make a catalog of 4 local television news collections available online. In addition, we will digitize 40 hours of material, selected by our users. These 4 collections (WHDH, WCVB, WGBH and CCTV) cover over 40 years of local Boston history as well as national stories.

For progress to date on this project, see our intern’s posts on his important work this fall, and watch this space for more news from this important and exciting project!

New Project: The Boston TV News Digital Library

The Boston TV News Digital Library is an IMLS funded project in partnership with Northeast Historic Film, Cambridge Community Television, and the Boston Public Library. The official title is “The Boston TV News Digital Library: 1960-2000” and it will be the first online resource providing a city’s commercial, noncommercial, and community cable TV news heritage to educators and the public. The project will publish the news collections from these institutions. This includes news footage from WGBH, WCVB, WHDH, UPN 38, and CCTV. The project will also work with WGBH’s Teachers’ Domain to enable access to the materials in classrooms.

We are seeking financial support for this project. If you are interested in donating, we encourage you to support Open Vault. If you are interested in learning more about the Boston TV News Digital Library, please contact us.
