Image & Film Research

Images and video appear easy to find and access, with huge amounts available through online platforms such as YouTube or Pinterest. Using media sourced from platforms like these remains complicated and centres around questions of transparency, trust and context. 

Curated collections, such as the Library's DVD collection or the online streaming service Kanopy, offer more certainty around questions of production, as well as better security of access. Box of Broadcasts content is selected by its users based in UK universities and comes from trusted mainstream producers.
