Louisiana Digital Media Archive is Now Online

The Louisiana Digital Media Archive was launched last month with 1,600 digitized video clips from Louisiana Public Broadcasting’s and the Louisiana State Archives’ collections. An ongoing project and the first such partnership between a public television station and a state agency, the number of clips contained on the website will continue to grow.

Videos included in the new online archive include Federal marshals escorting Ruby Bridges as she integrated New Orleans public schools; President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald distributing information on Bourbon Street; footage of the devastation left by Hurricane Camille all along the Gulf Coast.

These historic videos and hundreds more are now available for anyone to see at ladigitalmedia.org.
