One of the eResources that the university has access to is Box of Broadcasts, a shared online off-air TV and radio recording service for UK higher and further education institutions.

BoB enables all staff and students to choose and record any programme that has been broadcast in the last 30 days from 60+ TV and radio channels. The recorded programmes are then kept and added to the archive permanently (currently at over 1 million programmes), providing users access to view, create playlists and embed in presentations.

Users can schedule recordings in advance, edit programmes into clips, create playlists, embed clips into Blackboard, share what they are watching with others and search a growing archive of material. You can also request 800,000 programmes from the BBC archive going back as far as mid-2007.
