Databases With Video Content

Using Find it!

By starting with a general term or keyword, it is possible to narrow down a search to video options using the Find it! search box on the Libraries' home page by applying the filters on the left side of the screen. 

On the left side of the screen, look for the AVAILABILITY filter, and select "Full Text Online."   Then under MATERIAL TYPE, select "Audio Visual."     You may need to click on the "Show More" link in the MATERIAL TYPE filter to see the Audio Visual option. 

Commerical Sites

Commercial pay for view services, such as Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu, often restrict the use of their services to personal use only.  Under fair use, this would prohibit the streaming of this content in the classroom. 

However, it does not prohibit the assignment of such material to watch through personal accounts outside of the classroom.  As with all online material, accessibility issues and cost to the student(s) should be considered.

These sites allow you to quickly determine where content may be available.
