American Archive of Public Broadcasting

The American Archive of Public Broadcasting is a truly exceptional site, representing 60 years of public broadcasting from every state and region of the nation. For an overview of what public broadcasting has meant to America, the About page pulls together a convincing case with a 5-minute video and a short essay replete with quotes from senators, academics, and members of the public broadcasting community. Before searching the site, readers may like to select Searching the Website (found under Research), which describes how to use the search bar, limit your search, tell if a resource has been digitized, filter the search results, and search by media type, genre, asset type, organization, and year. From there, readers can spend hours scouring the site for access to layers and layers of American history, including everything from addresses by Eleanor Roosevelt to interviews with Jamaica Kincaid to old episodes of “See it Now” with Edward R. Murrow. Few archives offer the range and depth of information that the American Archie of Public Broadcasting promises. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
