Television News Archive


In addition to the nine campus libraries, Vanderbilt is home to the Television News Archive, the world's most extensive and complete archive of television news.

You can search the TV News Archive via their website or Library Catalog. The footage can be viewed within the Central Library or at the TV News Archive office at 110 21st Ave. S., Suite 704.


Did You Know...

As a Vanderbilt student you can borrow books and other items from any of the campus libraries (except Special Collections). 

It's also good to know that you can return most of the items you've checked out to any of the campus libraries. For example, if you borrow a book from the Central Library you can return it to Peabody.

Also look for bookdrops outside the various libraries, in Carmichael Towers, and at the Commons Center.
