Media at the Drew Library: Academic Video Online

Drew Library makes video and audio available in several formats, for use by students, faculty and staff. This Guide explains the options.

Academic Video Online

undefined

 

Academic Video Online offers a wide range of platform tools for learning, research, and teaching, including:

  • Transcripts. Users view searchable, scrolling transcripts alongside many titles and continue to be added monthly.
  • Clipping functionality. Users can easily create, annotate, and share video clips and playlists, and can embed them in third-party sites.
  • HD-quality player. A video player with a 16:9 aspect ratio that streams up to 2.5 mbps allows for optimized high-definition viewing.
  • Comprehensive permissions. Our platform enables in-class, on-campus, and remote viewing.

All content in Academic Video Online is also searchable in the Library catalog 

Public Performance Rights

Films available in Academic Video Online include limited public performance rights, which includes permission for classroom showings, as well as public screenings, as long as no admission is being charged.*

WE ENCOURAGE TO SEARCH FOR APPROPRIATE FILMS IN THIS PLATFORM FOR YOUR CLASSES. THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR THESE FILMS
