Hello:

I'm considering subscription to the PBS Video Database of America's History and Culture. At first look I thought it to be primarily a tool for K-12 teaching but the more I look at the Web site the more I begin to think it may be very useful to undergraduate programs at the University of Minnesota. It seems to be unique and so extensive that it might be of interest to the College of Education, here, to use as exemplary demonstration of the integration traditional video classroom resources with Web technology. There are a variety of other curricula at Minnesota that might find it useful to search a database for course germane image sequences from PBS programming. Do any of you on this list subscribe to the database? If so I'd be interested to learn your opinion about it as a library resource and teaching tool.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dan D.
