The Vanderbilt Television News Archive is the world's most extensive and complete archive of television news. We have been recording, preserving and providing access to television news broadcasts of the national networks since August 5, 1968.
Individuals request loans of items from our collection for reference, study, classroom instruction, and research. We offer DVDs that are duplications of entire broadcasts as well as compilations of individual news stories specified by the borrower. Borrowers pay fees for the items loaned to cover the costs of providing this service.
All material of the Vanderbilt Television News Archive must be used within the restrictions of the United States copyright legislation. Copyright Public Law 94-553 Section § 108 (f)(3) includes provisions regarding copyright exemptions for audiovisual works and archiving of television news broadcasts.
