The Library of Congress's Moving Image Research Center offers a number of online resources that may appeal to teachers and students of film history. Visitors may want to start by exploring the links in the About the Collection section, where readers can find out more about what films are held in the LOC. For instance, the National Film Preservation Board page features a short synopsis of all films in the collection, along with a number of longer film essays penned by scholars and critics. Another highlight of this collection is the National Film Registry collection, available in the Digital Collections & Online Resources section. Here, visitors may view 63 film clips from movies that are part of the National Film Registry. These include a clip from the 1945 Frank Sinatra film The House I Live In and a clip from an 1897 filmed boxing match between James Corbett and Bob Fitzsimmons, which is considered to be the first feature-length film. Other film clips can be found in the Digital Moving Image collections, which features thematic exhibits such as "America at Work, America at Leisure: Motion Pictures from 1894- 1915" and "Buckaroos in Paradise: Ranching Culture in Northern Nevada, 1945-1982."
