60 Minutes: 1997-2014

Atkins Library is excited to announce we have recently received a free one year subscription to the 60 Minutes: 1997-2014 streaming video package from Alexander Street Press. 

“60 MINUTES is one of the most successful television programs in American history. On top of more than 100 Emmy wins and 20 Peabody Awards, it holds the record for the longest continuously running primetime program in the history of television. With as many as 25 million viewers tuning in for its Sunday night broadcasts, 60 MINUTES remains among the most respected, influential TV journalism programs in the world.

This online collection provides 350 hours of video from 17 years of broadcasts, including hundreds of segments not available anywhere else in the world. True to 60 MINUTES’ iconic style, each news segment within the collection serves as a standalone short documentary on a specific news topic. The broad range of content offers boundless applications for students and researchers.” (source
