LSE Library launches access to BoB, an online TV recording service and archive of over 1 million programmes
LSE students and staff now have access to BoB (Box of Broadcasts), a shared online TV and radio recording service for UK higher and further education institutions.
BoB enables viewers to choose and record any broadcast programme from 60+ TV and radio channels, including BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
The recorded programmes are then kept indefinitely and added to BoB’s growing media archive of over 1 million programmes, with all content shared by users across subscribing institutions.
Programme clips can also be embedded into LSE Moodle courses. See this screencast for a ‘how to’:
The Library purchased its subscription for BoB after collaborating with CLT and following a consultation with the LSE academic community.
To sign up to BoB and start using the service, please use your LSE account to login.
