CSP Library   HIS 121: World History (Saylor): Finding Videos

A guide to help students of Prof. Saylor's HIS 121: World History class find background information on CREDO Reference, video clips from Films on Demand, and learn how to evaluate websites.

Finding Video Clips

Videos can be a great alternative for finding more information on a topic. The library has access to hundreds of video clips from educational videos and documentaries that provide a nice supplement to your other research. Films on Demand is one of the best places to start. Check it out below:

Below is an example of what you might find when searching Films on Demand. In this case, it is a clip from a longer documentary. A few things to notice:

  • Under the details section, you can find more information about the clip and where it came from
  • At the bottom, click the "Citation" button to produce a quick citation

Note: If you are having trouble finding clips that total ninety minutes, keep in mind you can also use full episodes that include a portion on your topic. This can help you learn more about your topic by placing it in a larger historical context.
