World Newsreels (4 countries) – Trial

posted in: History, Humanities, Research | 0


Third form Hum. Student: “This NBC newsreel about Sputnik is from the U.S. Doesn’t the library have one from Russia that I could watch?”

Me: “uhhhhhhhhh”


And while not Russian, library vendor Alexander Street Press, did recently release a new collection of 1929-1966 historic newsreels. Which countries? U.S., a little Japan, some from France as well as some Dutch clips.

Want a look? Trial access (when on the SPS network) is available through Feb 20 here.


Comments?  Applications come to mind?  Should the library buy?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
