Google Adds National Archives Videos
Further building up its library of free video content, Google on Friday announced it has launched a pilot program to digitize filmstrips from the United States National Archives. The company is currently offering videos from NASA, United Newsreel and the Department of Interior that date from 1916 to 1981.
"I think both students and teachers can agree that any of these would make for an exciting day in the classroom," commented Jon Steinback, product marketing manager for Google Video. "This includes truly momentous events like the moon landing, as well as rare historical footage like government documentaries from the 1930s and battlefield stories from World War II."
