Snag Films Plans to Increase Library to 10,000 Films

I don't often write about the investment and business developments of tech companies, but an article I recently read about Snag Films is worth passing along. Kara Swisher at All Things Digital recently reported that Snag Films received a $10 million investment which they plan to use to increase the size of their library to 10,000 titles from its current 2,000 titles. This is good news for teachers who have come to enjoy using Snag Films and its sister site Snag Learning for including free high quality documentary films in their courses.

Here's a nice short documentary that I recently found on Snag Learning. A Nomad's Life features a Tibetan family wondering if their nomadic traditions can survive in an increasingly modern world.
