New Database Added: Films on Demand

Library Services now subscribes to the Films on Demand database. With Films on Demand, students, staff, and faculty have instant access to thousands of full-length, high-quality educational videos.

Films produced by organizations such as BBC, History Channel, and PBS are available in dozens of subject areas. Users can also organize & bookmark clips, and create & share playlists.

This database can be accessed on campus or from home.  Film titles have been added to the library’s catalogue as well and can be identified by the [electronic resource (video)] notation in the item title.  Simply click on the Available Online link in the catalogue record to access the film.

Those who prefer to browse can access Films on Demand via Library Services’ databases page.  Simply click the Advanced Article Search link on the main library page, choose General/Multidisciplinary from the subject areas list, and then click Connect next to the entry for Films on Demand.  If you are accessing the database from home, you will be prompted for your Student or Staff/Faculty ID number. 

If you have questions about Films on Demand or would like more information, please contact the information desk at 403-504-3544.
