The Moving Image Gateway

The Moving Image Gateway (MIG) is a new service that collects together websites that relate to moving images and sound and their use in higher and further education.

The sites are classified by academic discipline, some forty subjects from Agriculture to Women's Studies, collected within the four main categories of Arts & Humanities, Bio-Medical, Social Sciences and Science & Technology.

Each site has been evaluated and described by the BUFVC's Information Service, which regularly checks and updates the database. Sites are highlighted which have video or audio streaming.

There are some 600 sites on the MIG database at present, and it continues to grow at the rate of ten per month.

Look out also for our 'Site of the Month' feature under each of the four main categories, highlighting resources of particular value or inventiveness.


The BUFVC is a representative body which promotes the production, study and use of film and related media in higher and further education and research. It was founded in 1948 as the British Universities Film Council.
