NISV: Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision

The NISV is responsible for the long-term preservation of Dutch audiovisual heritage as defined by the Dutch government. The NISV offers its services to diverse user groups. A major group are television professionals, such as producers, broadcasters and directors looking for reusable shots. The second user group is comprised of people from science and education: historians and communication scientists study the material in the archives; students and teachers from primary and secondary schools use the material to illustrate or clarify their lessons. This is the user group that will benefit from NISV as a CLARIN Data Provider. A third user group consists of people with a general interest in a programme or a topic, who use the NISV corporate website to access the archives from their homes.
NISV currently gives access to the "Academia collection" in a CLARIN compatible way.
