Streaming Videos: How to Use Videos
Some of our streaming video databases include a link to the citation, however, these citations are not always correct. Be sure to check the citation style manual or website to confirm the correct citation for streaming video. For the most current information and links to citation resources, please refer to the Citing Sources guide.
Transcripts and Closed Captions
Many of the videos include closed captioning and/or transcripts. If you find a video that does not have closed captioning or a transcript, we can request it. Please contact your liaison librarian for help with this.
Creating Clips and Playlists
You can create a custom clip, or segment, to focus on a specific concept within the full video. A playlist is a customized list of clips, segments, and/or videos that can be created and shared. To create a clip, segment, or playlist, you must have a user account (free). If you don't have a user account, you'll be prompted to create one.
