The TCU Library is fortunate to have several audiovisual databases that offer both archival and visual recordings. Newsreels, Associated Press images, and song and radio recordings are offered in the following databases.
It has been said that music is the soundtrack of our lives. This ASP database contains the soundtrack of American history including Civil War tunes, anti-war protest songs, Civil Rights, Prohibition, American Revolution... the list goes on of the tunes that have marked America's triumphs and tragedies.
A neat feature of this database is that you can search by historical event. If you need a song from a particular time period or event like the Civil War, the Revolution, the Industrial Age, the Gold Rush, etc. it's easy to find!
