Enhance teaching and learning  with streaming video 




Streaming video and other digital resources help libraries support the educational objectives of their institutions (online and in-person) and address the evolving ways people teach and learn.

“ The demand and popularity of streaming video in libraries are undeniable and growing at a steady pace. Academic Video Online has been a popular choice in libraries for many years, and with good reason. Its catalog is large and diverse, with strengths in many different subject areas. It employs desirable modules for educational institutions, offers customization options, and provides administrative tools for retrieving data and reports. Overall, an excellent resource for libraries serving educational organizations at any level."

Rob Tench, Library Journal, November 2019
