We have several sources for streaming videos that can be shown in class or assigned for viewing by students anywhere. Some of these include:
American History in Video provides streaming Flash videos covering American history, most with transcripts. It includes programs from the History Channel, A&E, and Biography Channel, plus documentaries, newsreels, and archival footage. Users who establish profiles can create playlists of videos and video clips with persistent URLs to include in course pages. Video coverage from 1492 to late 20th century.
Films of Demand provides streaming videos on social science and life science topics. The videos use Flash for desktop computers and HTML5-compatible media for mobile devices. Streaming rights expire for content on this platform; see the Addison record for the individual films for expiration dates.

This collection of streaming videos is the digital counterpart to our VHS collection of PBS shows. Complete list of titles. The collection covers a broad range of disciplines in the humanities, arts, social sciences and sciences, but is particularly strong in American history and American studies.
