C-SPAN Video Library: Design and Delivery
Time 10/14/08 03:00PM-04:00PM
C-SPAN, the national television network, has deployed a complete digital archive of its extensive video coverage free through Internet2. We hope that as teachers and researchers throughout the U.S. become more aware of our collection, its extensive index, the video library of 80,000 hours of programming, and a video player that permits clipping, that use will expand.
The HYPERLINK "http://www.c-span.org/videolibrary" C-SPAN Video Library ( HYPERLINK "http://c-span.org/videolibrary" http://c-span.org/videolibrary) is an online website containing every program recorded by C-SPAN since 1987. Currently all video back to 1998, about 60% of the entire 150,000 hour collection, is digitized and available online in Flash video with a player that allows the selection of clips. A search algorithm indexes speakers, subjects, sponsors, keyword, and words spoken.
The Congressional Chronicle feature is a chronological organization of all speakers and actions on the floor of the U.S. House and Senate. Each speaker
