The Library now has a subscription to NewsFilm Online. This YouTube video introduces this new resource, which all GSA students and staff have access to via an Athens account.

NewsFilm Online offers access to over 3,000 hours of downloadable television news and cinema newsreels, selected from the huge ITN/Reuters Television archives. Delivered online in high quality format, this resource is a gateway of unmatched richness to one hundred years of news. Users can watch and download over 50,000 clips, including significant historical events such as the Crystal Palace fire, or the first interview with Nelson Mandela. In addition to the video clips, resources such as running orders and scripts, images, background on news footage, and learning and teaching tools are available.
