From the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), here is an excellent guide to photojournalism links –
Photojournalism on the Web: A guide for practicing and student photojournalists
Also, check out 10 x 10, a site that uses RSS feeds of news from across the web and presents the photos associated with the headlines. It’s an interesting way to watch stories as they break.
The Library of Congress has posted an online exhibit, Bound for Glory, which includes rarely seen color photos taken by government photographers in the 1930s and 1940s.
Just a couple of photo/multimedia archive resources:
AP/Accunet Multimedia Archive – This resource is an archive of Associated Press photographs from 1844 to the present, audio files of radio broadcasts, text of wire stories (access restricted to Columbia affiliates)
Internet Archive – The Internet Archive is a nonprofit founded in 1996 that provides access to historical collections that exist in digital format (audio, video, software, etc.). Try the WayBack Machine – remember getting pints of Ben&Jerry’s delivered to your door through http://www.urbanfetch.com? Step back in time to view archives of websites no longer in existence!
An online version of the National Portrait Gallery’s holdings of Time magazine’s cover portraits, this site can be browsed by category (e.g. Man of the Year) and also includes enhanced features such as biographical sketches and audio clips.
