Academia is the online access to almost 90,000 audiovisual sources for higher education in the Netherlands. This is a selection from the archives of the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision (Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid – NIBG).
A licence to Academia concluded by the education institution gives staff and students of the member institutions the right to material from the Dutch broadcasting corporations that is archived by the NIBG for use within the framework of education. In addition to older material, currently transmitted material is also archived by the NIBG. An education institution can obtain a licence to Academia at an annual rate that is related to its number of students and lecturers.
