The collection includes nightly news programs broadcast by the national television networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) since August 5, 1968, and a daily news program from CNN since 1995. Archive staff write abstracts of each story within a regular news program, which are fully searchable in the TV-NewsSearch database. Individuals throughout the world may make requests for video tape loans for reference, study, classroom instruction, and research. Users pay fees for tape loans to cover the costs of providing this service. Computers on campus will also display streaming video from CNN broadcasts using RealOne.
