The 9/11 Television News Archive

A library of news coverage of the events of 9/11/2001 and their aftermath as presented by U.S. and international broadcasters. A resource for scholars, journalists, and the public, it presents one week of news broadcasts for study, research and analysis. Television is our pre-eminent medium of information, entertainment and persuasion, but until now it has not been a medium of record. This Archive attempts to address this gap by making TV news coverage of this critical week in September 2001 available to those studying these events and their treatment in the media. Explore 3,000 hours of international TV News from 20 channels over 7 days, and select analysis by scholars.


A Livebinder collection of 9/11 images, videos, slide shows, interactives, timelines, and K-12 lessons. Very comprehensive collection.

Sept. 11 Library of Congress Documentary Project

The most stunning this about this collection are the featured drawings done by children depicting their impressions and thoughts on the event.

From LOC Gallery page:

Among the most compelling items received by the American Folklife Center were 14 drawings submitted by third-grade students from Sequoyah Elementary School in Knoxville, Tennessee. Their drawings included the message, “We love our country and want to show how much we care. We hope you enjoy our pictures.”
