Database Trial: The March of Time

Occasionally TWU Libraries offer temporary access to research databases to gather feedback on possible acquisition. At these times input from TWU students and faculty becomes a vital part of the libraries' decision-making process.

Through June 30th, 2012 a trial is taking place for the database The March of Time. From 1935 to 1967, American theatergoers and television watchers were witness to Time Inc.'s unique and controversial newsreel series, The March of Time®. Now, for the first time, this groundbreaking series is available in online streaming video in a single, cross-searchable collection designed specifically to meet the needs of researchers, teaching faculty and students. The newsreels have been restored to their original luster by HBO Archives, allowing viewers to experience this historic footage as audiences did in earlier decades. Searchable transcripts are included. Photo above courtesy of courant.com.

Access The March of Time directly or via the TWU Libraries Database Trials page (we'd appreciate your thoughts on the Database Trial Form at the bottom of the page.)

For questions about a database or other assistance, please contact the TWU Libraries using our online Ask a Librarian form. A librarian will be happy to assist you.

We appreciate your input. Thank you.
