There are two primary ways to find streaming videos that the UW Libraries has licensed for UW and Cascadia students, faculty and staff:
1. Check the Streaming Video Research Guide for UW-Licensed collections. This guide gathers in a single place all of the major collections of streaming video that UW Libraries has licensed for educational use. If you are new to streaming video, a good place to start is in one of the large Alexander Street Press collections, organized by subject area.
2. Use UW Libraries Search to search for content. Online/streaming video will have an “eVideo” resource type icon and it will say “Online access” just below the cataloging information.
1. To find the stable URL of online videos you can add to your Canvas course guides, find the film you want students to view in UW Libraries Search.
Click on “Access Options” and then “Share / Save”
2. Use the "Share/Save" dropdown menu and then click on “Permalink”
3. Copy the Permalink, which you can post inside your Canvas site. This link will take students directly to the item in UW Libraries Search.
