Did you know UCF Libraries has streaming video options that are searchable through our catalog?
We do! Alexander Street Press, Films on Demand, and Kanopy films are all searchable through the UCF Libraries’ catalog and can be used for online courses (or just for fun).
Alexander Street Press contains more than 80 collections filled with videos, audio tracks and playlists. The collections range from literature, black history, psychological counseling and therapy to religion, sociology and medicine. Entire films can be embedded in courses or only relevant segments. The full Alexander Street Pres video catalog search will require a UCF or OpenAthens login.
Films on Demand is a great resource that includes documentaries, TEDTalks, and even a playlist of Ken Burns series including Vietnam. Entire films can be embedded in courses or only relevant segments. The full Films on Demand catalog search will require a UCF or OpenAthens login.
Kanopy films are paid for by UCF on an on-demand, per-title basis so the selection is somewhat limited, but it includes popular films and a wide range of documentaries. Examples are Ex Libris: The New York Public Library, The Mask You Live In, Awake a Dream of Standing Rock, and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.
Please consult your subject librarian for any of these films to verify expiration dates. If you do not know your subject librarian, their contact information can be found through our subject specific list.
