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.

Vietnam Collection Launched!

Today, on the 35th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon, WGBH Media Library and Archives launches the Open Vault Vietnam Collection, an online video library drawn exclusively from the 1983 landmark WGBH series, VIETNAM: A TELEVISION HISTORY.

The Vietnam Collection contains hours of rare archival footage and in-depth interviews with key decision makers and veterans on both sides of the conflict, as well as enhanced tools to interact the media. This two-year project is a collaboration between WGBH Media Library and Archives, the University of Massachusetts/Boston (UMB), and the Columbia University Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL).

To coincide with the launch of this collection, WGBH’s Digital Mural is featuring images from the collection today!

New Project: War and Peace in the Nuclear Age

Another new project for the Media Library and Archives. We’ve received funding from the NEH to digitize and stream 254 original interviews (video and transcripts) produced for the broadcast series War and Peace in the Nuclear Age. These digitized materials will join the Nuclear Age records already on Open Vault.

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.
