New E-Resource: JISC MediaHub

JISC MediaHub is a new academic video, image and audio resource.



When logging in to this resource on campus, you can select either Log in via UK federation or Log in via direct access.  Off campus users must select the Log in via UK federation option.

From the home page, you can see that there are three main collections of resources available for you to browse:

Inside JISC MediaHub – these collections are available to Bangor University and include items previously available via the NewsFilm Online and Film and Sound Online databases.  Examples include: footage, running orders and programme scripts from the ITN/Reuters archives of television news, cinema newsreels and press agency newsfeeds; documentaries and feature films from significant film makers; photographs and representations of artefacts in museums or galleries and programmes from broadcasters such as Channel 4, Channel 5, Anglia TV, etc.

Outside JISC MediaHub (unrestricted) – these collections are linked to from JISC MediaHub, but are held on external web sites and are freely available to all.

Outside JISC MediaHub (restricted) – these collections are linked to from JISC MediaHub, but are held on external web sites that may require you to use your Bangor username and password to access.  Please note: you will only be able to access resources in this collection that Bangor University Library has a current subscription for.

You can explore the database by collection, time frame, subject or place, and film and sound files can be watched or downloaded, either in full or as segments.
