A Guide from Alexander Street Press



Welcome to the Library's newest Online streaming Video Database!

Thanks to a cooperative acquisition initiative of the libraries of SIUC, NIU, UIC, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, all faculty, students, and staff now have 24/7, online access to 12 discipline-specific, streaming video collections, which together include more than 10,000 full-length films—all cross-searchable from a single interface.

No special equipment is required to show the videos—a standard browser and display monitor are all you need.

The package includes unlimited remote access, rich clip-making and playlist functionality, an embeddable video player for easy course management integration, and keyword-searchable transcripts for most collections.
