The Archival Films and Newsreels Collection offers 5000+ videos and video clips on historical events.  Throughout modern history, cameras have recorded public events, wars, cultural phenomena, and government programs. This collection is a treasure trove of archival and historical films from multiple sources, including the Prelinger Archives covering U.S. cultural and social history, the WPA Film Library, the United Newsreel collection of WWII-era newsreels, and the Universal Newsreel collection produced by Universal Studios between 1929-67.

The videos are searchable and browsable by subject, category, and producer.  Users can create and edit playlists, create personal accounts, view transcripts, incorporate videos into D2L, and more.  For faculty: please check out the Educators’ Quick Start Guide for details on the features available.
