Library of Congress videos on YouTube, too
Last week I mentioned that the Library of Congress was making its audio archives available through iTunes. Now you can also access a growing collection of archived video via the LOC YouTube channel, including book readings, old films, and historical documentaries.
If you’re a professional developer planning to use one of these videos in a school, don’t forget that many districts block access to YouTube (and other video sharing services), so plan ahead! You can use software like TubeTV or online services like KickYouTube (just add the word kick in front of youtube.com in the video’s web address) to save a copy of a clip to your hard drive.
