  • AP Photo Archive
    The AP Multimedia Archive is a supplemental research tool that allows learners of all ages and areas of interest to search four databases that will take them on a sensory journey using photographs, audio sound bytes, graphics and text spanning over 160 years of history. From simple keyword searching to more complex searches such as concept, color, and category, users will enhance their research and increase their knowledge by accessing over one million photographs dating back to 1826 and as current as a few moments ago. Tens of thousands of graphics, more than 4,500 hours of audio files dating from the 1920's, and news stories and headlines dating from 1997 will allow the user to complete their research project with content as diverse as the project itself. The content is a primary source, and is provided by The Associated Press´┐Ż. The AP has won more Pulitzer Prizes than any other news agency, and is the most credible source for non-biased reporting. Founded in 1848, the AP is the oldest and largest news organization in the world, and is an important part of modern-day world history, serving more than one billion people each day. **For educational usage only.**
