The WGBH Educational Foundation Media Library and Archives, in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts/Boston (UMB) and the Columbia University Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL), will create a digital library of material relating to the 1983 series Vietnam: A Television History. Scholars, academics, and the general public will access the original interview materials and stills, and most of the stock footage gathered for the series. Entire interviews will stream online and link to interactive transcripts, allowing users to explore an interview at any point. Online note-taking will enable social networking among worldwide users. The project will be a model partnership among a public television station’s moving image archive, university library staff, and a university digital media center.
