Streaming video content and tips for using it

Films on Demand

Films on Demand is a comprehensive collection of high-quality educational videos licensed from a long established educational media distributor (Films for the Humanities and Sciences).  Other content providers for Films on Demand include Davidson Films, California Newsreel, PBS and many more.  Over 21,000 videos cover a wide range of topics organized into broad subjects. Individual segments subdivide each video into discrete shorter units.

The interface allows searching by title, by keywords in segments, browsing titles alphabetically, and browsing or searching within the subject areas. 

 Closed Captioning

Most of the titles in the collection have closed-captions and many have interactive transcripts.  Use the Advanced Search function to limit search results to titles with closed-captioning and transcripts. If you need closed captioning for a particular title that does not have captions, please contact the Libraries’ acquisitions team at erasbuy@lists.unr.edu
