Welcome to the Library's 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 39 discipline-specific, streaming video collections, which together include thousands of 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.
