After being offline for several months, the Museum of Broadcast Communications archives are back online.
Sort of. There is no link to searchable archives at the MBC website and the “Using the Archives” page still has the following notice:
The online archives are unavailable with the new museum under construction. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your support and interest as we move into our new home at State and Kinzie in downtown Chicago.
November 29th Update: The MBC website has taken down its notice about the archives being unavailable and a link to search the archives has returned under the Collection drop down menu.
But if you click here you will find the same old message from Bruce DuMont and you will be able to log in if you have an existing username and password (whether or not new users can register is unknown). If you have any pressing research, you might want to do it sooner rather than later. There is no way of knowing when the archives will go offline again. Thanks to Nick for letting me know the archives were back online.
