Locating and obtaining videos for class instruction

Search for Videos

Use this search box to search for library streaming videos and DVDs across multiple resources, or browse the individual databases below.

Academic Video Online (AVON) 

AVON is the recommended database to locate videos for your class. The library subscribes to the entire collection, so if you locate a video in AVON, you should be able to easily link to it or embed it into Blackboard.


It is highly recommended that you search the AVON database first and use Kanopy only when absolutely necessary. The library does not subscribe to the entire Kanopy collection as the individual 1-year subscriptions per title are expensive.

More Information about Videos

Contact Susan Luchars if you would like to request a subscription to a video, or if you need assistance obtaining any videos for your course.
