Why Video?

Whether entertaining viewers or demonstrating mitosis, dance, or a well delivered curve ball, videos are a great boon to teaching.

The library has access to over 125,000 streaming videos.

Find out how to find them and load them into Canvas or the Library's Guides.

We also have over 1,600 DVDs which can still be used in the classroom or the library. Students can even check out a DVD player for 3 days.

Other Video Databases

In addition to the large video databases listed at the top of the page are more than a dozen mixed use and special topic databases.Some, like Credo Reference and ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health are full text databases with limited video content. Others, like JoVE and  NAXOS Video library, have significant content, but are narrow in scope and appropriate to a single major.
