Archives Road Trip | Public Broadcasting | New Special Collection
Starting July 5th, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) is taking a virtual road trip through the archive! Time nor space defines this trip, just an all-access pass to content that tells the story of America’s nostalgia and national identity through raw interviews, newscasts, local documentaries, and lectures among other treasures!
Access the AAPB Road Trip Special Collection here! http://americanarchive.org/special_collections/aapb-road-trip.
Selected clips from AAPB’s participating organizations will be shared through AAPB’s social media outlets (@amarchivepub), and you can view the programs in-full within the AAPB Road Trip Special Collection. The collection will be updated with new clips as the summer progresses. The segmented clips and their full programs can be found using the AAPB Road Trip interactive map.
Join us as the #AAPBRoadTrip moves from the east to west coast, and back again, visiting local festivals, monuments, lecture halls, national parks, museums, and poetry readings, among other discoveries! The trip will go through September.
The AAPB is a collaboration between the Library of Congress and WGBH Education Foundation to preserve and make accessible significant, historical public broadcasting from across the nation. Collections include local broadcasts from over 100 stations, 2.5 billion inventory records, and 32,000 programs available online for the American public.
