This was a previously published post on the JSRCC Library Blog last year, but I thought it should get another mention:
Are you wasting your time trying to find videos, audio clips, or pictures for a class lesson, assignment, or presentation? Look no further! The library has developed an online Multimedia Resources guide containing a wealth of links to video clips, audio clips, and pictures on the Internet. To access the guide from the library’s home page, click on Subject Guides, then Multimedia Resources. Here is just a sampling of resources available from the guide:
- American Rhetoric
Includes audio clips of American speeches, sermons, lectures, and interviews.
- Annenberg Media – Video on Demand
Includes a wide range of instructional video programs in a variety of disciplines.
Large collection of free photos available for non-commercial use on the Internet.
- Internet Moving Images Archive
Contains thousands of videos which range from classic full-length movies, to daily news alternative broadcasts, to user-uploaded videos of every genre.
- NYPL Digital Gallery
Access to over 520,000 images from the New York Public Library. Includes manuscripts, historical maps, vintage posters, rare prints and photographs, illustrated books and more.
- Vincent Voice Library
A collection of speeches, performances, lectures, interviews, and broadcasts from over 50,000 people and recorded over the last 100 years.
