Library Resources in Art and Art History

About Videos

Videos can be a rich source of information for research, adding visual, sound, and movement to illustrate concepts beyond what can be described in words. Feature films and documentaries on DVD are available in each campus library, and are listed in the library catalog along with the books. Streaming video can be accessed through the library databases. These range from short educational and historical film clips to full-length movies and documentaries. 

Searching for Videos

You can use the video search below (and on our home page) to find films and videos in different formats. DVDs are available for checkout and can be requested to be sent from one campus to another. Many films are available to stream. 

Search our Films on Demand video collection.

 

 

or go to the Streaming Media Guide for more collections and information.

Using the Films on Demand (FOD) Database

The Films on Demand (FOD) database contains thousands of films and film clip segments on many topics. Films can be streamed and viewed in their entirety or by segment, making them ideal for presentations. Users can create a private and free user account to keep track of favorites and to create playlists.

You can search Films on Demand by using keywords in the search box, and then choosing one of options: film title, segment or transcript. FOD can also be browsed by topic. Look for FOD's Advanced Search option for more control over a search. Browse FOD's Art and Architecture Video Collection.
