Resource Spotlight: AP Multimedia Archive

Haven’t tried the AP Multimedia Archive yet?  (Access restricted to current Columbia affiliates.)  Here’s some of what you’re missing…

  • Photographs taken by AP photographers, back to 1844, searchable by caption (try keywords Lincoln funeral car, then click Search)
  • Radio reports (try keyword Hindenburg, click the “Audio” option on the left-hand menu, then click Search)
  • Info-graphics (try keyword nuclear, click the “Graphics PDF” options on the left-hand menu, then click Search)
  • But wait, there’s more!  If you click the “Help” link from the left menu, you can find out how to do special searches of photos, by concept, color, and more…

    Don’t forget, this material is copyrighted to the Associated Press.  If you use it in a school project, credit the AP Multimedia Archive.  And if you want to sell a piece, you must seek clearance from the AP if you are incorporating their work into yours.
