This essay describes the creation of Web-based multipurpose multimedia databases concerned with the Supreme Court and other historically and politically significant institutions, events, and actors. These databases enrich instruction and may encourage learning. These materials are rich in emotive content that text-only transcriptions never capture. Scholars have only begun to tap multimedia resources. Their scholarship becomes verifiable when such media are open to all. Web access is one step toward this objective. Serious multimedia content providers may discover that hybrid compact disk (CD) and digital video disk (DVD) technology can simultaneously protect their intellectual property and encourage its use.
