Streaming Video Databases

The Library subscribes to several streaming video collections that offer instant access to quality, Web-based videos in a broad range of subject areas to enhance teaching and learning at the undergraduate and graduate course levels. Use these tools to find and view films, and to create video clips or customized playlists which can be viewed in classrooms and embed in presentations or on Canvas course pages. Each database includes simple instructions. Need help? Contact Marge Kappanadze at (607) 735-1867, or
