Windows on Maine

Windows on Maine is a K-12 educational resource featuring digitized images, audio, and video from places like MPBN, Northeast Historic Film, the Maine Historical Society, and the Maine Folklife Center.
Windows on Maine is a pilot project to develop an online service offering streaming video programs and clips, and other primary and secondary digital resources, via broadband and wireless connections. It features a searchable database of complete programs and video clips from Maine Public Broadcasting Network's award winning historical series, HOME, the Story of Maine and its signature science series, Quest, Investigating Our World. Rich multimedia that further documents Maine's history and the Gulf of Maine ecology has been selected from collections of the state's cultural institutions, and complements the video archive.
The Map Search feature works well for finding hidden treasures, like this vintage postcard titled "All the Law Allows in Maine," from Fogler Special Collections.
