Vanderbilt TV News Archive to Deliver NBC Video

The Vanderbilt Television News Archive ( and NBC Universal have formed a new partnership to provide streaming video access for students, researchers, and faculty at colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. This agreement allows the archive to deliver 8,800 hours of NBC news broadcasts in its collection of streaming video to subscribers to its online service.

The Vanderbilt Television News Archive has recorded and preserved newscasts of the major television networks, including NBC, for almost 40 years. A provision in the U.S. copyright law provides legal protection to libraries such as Vanderbilt to record and loan physical copies of news broadcasts, but it does not allow online streaming. With this new agreement, NBC Universal grants Vanderbilt limited permission to stream its copyrighted material to colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. NBC Universal retains full ownership of content of the newscasts. Online viewing of the content through Vanderbilt’s service is intended for education and research; those interested in licensing of the content for commercial use will continue to work through NBC Universal.

The Vanderbilt Television News Archive, a unit of the Vanderbilt University Libraries, is a comprehensive archive of news broadcasts of the U.S. national television networks. The archive began recording newscasts on Aug. 5, 1968, as a 3-month experiment. Its collection consists of a comprehensive archive of evening news broadcasts supplemented by selected special news programs. These include coverage of major events such as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Iraq War, the Persian Gulf War, Democratic and Republican political conventions held since 1968, presidential election coverage, the Watergate hearings, and many others.
