The newspapers and news pamphlets gathered by the Reverend Charles Burney (1757 - 1817) represent the largest single collection of 17th and 18th century English news media. The 700 or so bound volumes of newspapers and news pamphlets were published mostly in London, however there are also some English provincial, Irish and Scottish papers, and a few examples from the American colonies, Europe and India. The trial is available until December 15, 2013. Contact: Ed Shephard.
Silent Film Online
Silent Film Online covers silent feature films, serials, and shorts from the 1890s to the 1930s. It includes the most complete, highest quality, authoritative versions from leading distributors. Whether through D.W. Griffith's pioneering use of cross-cutting in Birth of a Nation, Robert Wiene's experimentation with unusual camera angles and complex stage settings in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, or Eisenstein's demonstration of the power of montage in his editing of the "Odessa Steps" sequence in Battleship Potemkin, these films show us the origins of the narrative language of cinema. The trial is available until January 6, 2014. Contact: Colleen Hailey
