NBC Learn

The Miami U. Libraries now offer access to NBC Learn, a news archive of 12,000+ stories from the NBC News archives from 1920-present. It’s important to note that this database is available for On-campus use only at this time.

NBC Learn makes available to Miami users thousands of videos, historic newsreels, primary source documents, photographs, and more. Browse collections by subject, including the Current Events collection, offering content from 2009-present, and the Decision 2012 collection, providing content on the candidates, issues, and more.

All video, documents, and images are viewed in what NBC Learn calls a “Cue Card” which serves as a video player, image and document viewer, and flash card. Depending on the Cue Card type, you’ll see links on the rights side of the card. Click on the Transcripts link to view a transcript of the video or, in the case of the below Cue Card, click on Activity to view a student activity for teachers in the classroom. Flip any Cue Card over by clicking on the curved arrow in the top right of the card. This is where you’ll find information about the resource, such as source, creator, air/publish date, event date, and much more. For more info about using these features, read the Cue Cards section of the database’s Help tab.
