Prelinger Archives Houses “Orphan” Content

Purchased by the Library of Congress, the Prelinger Archive holds an eclectic array of visual images as well as audio and video recordings including, among others,  advertisements, home movies, commercials, and educational films. The mission of the archive is to create a repository for content that might not find a home in other collections.  The content is wide ranging and provides data for perspectives that might not be included in a traditional archive.  Additionally, the Prelinger Archive contains stock footage that may be accessed through a relationship with Getty Images.  It is housed at the Internet Archive.  The page references its rights statement, but it doesn’t appear to be in the location stated.
