In the pursuit of providing higher academic institutions with the best reso=
urces available for research and study, Vanderbilt University is able to of=
fer these institutions the opportunity to subscribe to the Vanderbilt Telev=
ision News Archive. This subscription provides a unique and powerful resour=
ce for a variety of research areas.

Access to these materials within the Vanderbilt Television News Archive wil=
l serve as the perfect resource for those individuals interested in reviewi=
ng, studying, or researching broadcasted news events, especially in areas s=
uch as communications, journalism, political science, and radio/television.

Since August 5, 1968, the Vanderbilt Television News Archive has recorded a=
nd archived each evening newscast broadcasted by the three major networks, =
as well as a variety of other news-related programs. The Vanderbilt Televis=
ion News Archive has amassed the most complete and extensive collection of =
television news video in the world.

In recent years, the Archive has converted almost all of its collection to =
digital video and has been recording broadcasts digitally since 2004. Thro=
ugh this digital initiative and an agreement we have in place with CNN, we =
now have the capability to stream content from that network to subscribing =
educational institutions for use by their students, faculty, and staff.

The Vanderbilt Television News Archive has over 850,000 video news segments=
, complete with searchable abstracts. The archive includes evening news bro=
adcasts from ABC (August 5, 1968 - present), CBS (August 5, 1968 - present)=
, and NBC (August 5, 1968 - present), as well as FoxNews Reports (January 1=
5, 2004 - present) and CNN. The archive also contains ABC's Nightline and S=
pecial Report coverage including:

* Each Republican and Democratic political convention since 1968 and cor=
responding election coverage.
* Each televised State of the Union Address since 1968.
* The Watergate hearings of the Senate and House of Representatives, inc=
luding the transcripts, which we recently digitized.
* Most major speeches given by U.S. Presidents since 1968.
* Presidential news conferences.
* Coverage of the American hostage crisis in Iran.
* Coverage of the first Persian Gulf War.
* Coverage of the terrorist's attacks on the United States on September =
11, 2001.
* Coverage of the War in Afghanistan.
* Coverage of the War in Iraq.
*

Colleges and universities that subscribe gain access to over 95,000 CNN seg=
ments, 3,000 evening news shows, 2,500 special reports, and 4,600 hours of =
video, which may be streamed to any computer on campus.

Other benefits to this subscription include the ability to search the entir=
e Vanderbilt Television News Archive database, while allowing students, fac=
ulty, and staff the ability to search the database without having to regist=
er.

The Vanderbilt Television News Archive also provides a loan service to indi=
viduals interested in viewing the archived materials from ABC, CBS, NBC, an=
d FoxNews. Items ordered through the Vanderbilt Television News Archive Web=
site are available in DVD or VHS format and are eligible for an educationa=
l discount.

For those interested academic institutions, we are offering a three-month f=
ree trial period. Full-use of the Vanderbilt Television News Archive<http:/=
/tvnews.vanderbilt.edu/>, including the streaming CNN content, will be avai=
lable to your entire institution during this time.

For more information and specific prices or to register for a trial subscri=
ption, please visit

http://tvnews.vanderbilt.edu/tvn-subscription-info.pl

Since we are a library ourselves in addition to being a supplier of an elec=
tronic subscription product, we understand the difficult decisions that mus=
t be made in selecting resources that will offer the largest benefits to li=
brary users. We believe that the combination of the streaming CNN content,=
coupled with the convenient access to our powerful news database, forms a =
compelling product that will be a great addition to the electronic resource=
s your library offers to its researchers.

Depending on your enrollment, the annual cost of the subscription ranges fr=
om $600 to $2,200.

As the only independent and objective Archive of U.S. national news broadca=
sts, we feel that it's vital to sustain this Archive. The income we receiv=
e from subscriptions helps us continue the important work of the Vanderbilt=
Television News Archive.

If there are any questions we may answer about our service, please do not h=
esitate to contact us.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
