Students and teachers now have free online access to more than 100 historic films, including old World War II newsreels and NASA documentaries, thanks to an agreement between Google and the National Archives. The non-exclusive agreement allows scholars, researchers, and the general public to access a diverse collection of historic movies, documentaries, and other films from the National Archives via Google Video, as well as the National Archives web site.
The pilot program features 103 films from the audiovisual collections preserved at the Archives.
Google is also exploring the possibility of expanding the project to include more video. The company would also like to make the Archives’ extensive textual holdings available via the web.
