Films on Demand

Films on Demand logo

Films on Demand is an exciting new resource purchased by STLCC libraries, presenting films in many subject areas.  Films can be viewed in their entirety or section by section, making them ideal for presentations. These resources are accessible from any campus computer or by logging into the database from off campus.

Once logged into the database, you can select Health and Medicine from the View by Subject list to see all videos in that category, or you can try a keyword search such as "anatomy" or on whatever else your topic may be.


Youtube logo

You may also be able to find useful videos about a career on free Internet sites such as YouTube. Try a phrase such as operating room procedures or surgical instruments preparation. NOTE: YouTube is a classic example of one of the strengths and weaknesses of the Internet, which is the fact that anyone can post videos. As such, the quality and scholarly acceptability of videos varies greatly. There may be useful video clips on YouTube, however, so it is worth a look. Before referencing any material from YouTube (or other video sites on the Internet) in a paper or using a clip in a presentation, though, it is highly advisable to check with your instructor concerning the acceptability of the video for the assignment.
