Is anyone out there able to search the collection and/or watch digitized programs at the Museum of Broadcast Communications Archives? I have tried numerous times over the past few weeks to log in but get a “connection has timed out” error after each attempt. I thought perhaps my log-in credentials, which I believe were created in 2005, had expired so I register again but continue to get the same error.
I cannot find any information at the Museum’s website and my attempts to contact the Museum have been unsuccessful. The fact that the museum currently doesn’t have a physical location — its new building is under construction amidst financial issues — could mean there aren’t a lot of staff members around at the moment. I can understand taking down the digitized programs, which I believe has happened in the past, if the bandwidth/storage costs are high, but not being able to search the collection at all is another matter.
If anyone knows what the situation is, please let me know.
