Internet Archive is helping researchers, news junkies and journalists tackle the 2012 election season with a new resource, the TV News Search and Borrow database.
The new database lets users search an archive of 350,000 television news clips and transcripts collected since 2009 for TV news reports on topics of interest. Local stations in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco as well as network newscasts serve as the backbone of archive.
The database is modeled on the Vanderbilt Television News Archive, which for four decades has chronicled TV news coverage of U.S. elections. In this podcast interview, Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle discusses the new online database.
