Educational Videos Online Anytime, Anywhere!

We are pleased to announce a new teaching and learning format for our community: Videos On Demand. This capability is a collaborative effort made possible by the Herman B Wells Library Kent Cooper Room, Digital Library Program, and Information Technology to provide video access for online classes as well as for IUB authorized users who need access to video content.

To date, the Wells Library has licensed nearly 100 titles covering a variety of subject areas. These videos can be viewed in the classroom, via e-Reserve, or on a desktop without ever having to make a trip to KCR Media Services for check out or return. A current list of streaming titles is available at:

As faculty and instructors, you may request that streaming video be made available in e-Reserve or Oncourse. The online request form is available at:

Licensed titles can be purchased from numerous content providers, such California Newsreel, Films Media Group (FMG), formerly Films for the Humanities & Sciences, Media Education Foundation, and PBS. You may preview 4,000 clips at the Films Media Group Web site ( and request that we purchase additional titles, or ask us about other purchasing options

If you have any questions or comments about VoD service, please talk to your media librarians Monique Threatt ( or Martha Harsanyi (
