Those of you in the research world will be very happy to note that the Library of Congress launched their own YouTube Channel where you can view videos from the National Book Festival and more.

Meanwhile the folks at PBS bring us their own branded video portal where users can view a range of full length & clips of PBS shows like FRONTLINE The Hugo Chavez Show or NOVA Cracking the Maya Code and more.

Another great find: The World Digital Library (WDL) offers “free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from countries and cultures around the world.” There’s enought to spend hours just browsing pictures of Brazilian princesses, Chilean ranchers, maps and more.
