60 Minutes Database Now Available to Libraries
(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – Alexander Street recently launched a new collection -- 60 MINUTES: 1997–2014 -- in partnership with CBS News. This new resource grants unprecedented access to the 60 MINUTES news program from this period, including many episodes not widely seen since their original broadcast. The entire collection is only available from Alexander Street for the library market.
The database provides 350 hours of high-definition video from eighteen years of broadcasts. True to 60 MINUTES’ iconic style, each news segment within the collection serves as a standalone short documentary on a specific news topic. The resource also includes 175 hours of bonus material from the popular CBS News program Sunday Morning. The addition of this programming brings the collection to a total of 525 hours of CBS News content.
The collection is now available to libraries worldwide via annual subscription or perpetual license. Libraries may also request a free 30-day trial of the collection at http://www.alexanderstreet.com/60MINUTES.
Libraries attending the American Library Association’s Annual Conference in San Francisco this week can enter to win a free one-year subscription to 60 MINUTES: 1997–2014 at booth #918.
