Library Search Help

Searching for Streaming Videos

Did you know UConn Library offers a number of media streams/films that you can access online? No borrowing of DVDs are necessary.  All ECE instructors, students and LMS need is a UConn netid and password to access them.

To browse collections, go to https://primo-pmtna01.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/collectionDiscovery?vid=01UCT&collectionId=81478086940002432

UConn streams are available from:

  • Alexander Street Press Video Collection 
  • UConn Library Mediasite Streaming Video Collection (Streaming videos hosted by the UConn Library)
  • UConn Library's Perpetual Streaming Videos (streaming videos that have perpetual or life of file access; access in perpetuity.) 
  • Kanopy (selected titles)
  • Swank Video
  • and more

If you wish to search for a title in our catalog, you can either search the various video databases or use the Library General Search : Search : http://search.lib.uconn.edu    

Change the menu from Articles & Library Catalog to Library Catalog.
Enter your search terms. 
Refine the results using the facets on the left: Video and Full Text Online.

For example:
#1 A search for "civil rights" and united states, limited to Video and Full text online will display 38 results.
http://s.uconn.edu/mediacivil

The lists includes a 60 min. film: "Get in the way : the journey of John Lewis" and the 40 min film "Selma, the bridge to the ballot."

#2 A search for  Japanese Americans evacuation and relocation for films about the internment of Japanese Americans. Limited by video and full text online will result in 12 streaming films: http://s.uconn.edu/internmentfilm


Instructors can add links to specific films to their online class websites. Please consult the Stable Linking guide for instructions: http://guides.lib.uconn.edu/stablelinks . The steps vary by vendor.

Please note one should always preview the films before a class showing to ensure the film follows your school policies.
