Searching for Streaming Videos

The UW-Green Bay Libraries have access to over 125,00 streaming titles. Many of them can be found with the following Search@UW streaming videos search box. You can also search the databases listed below to find films on a subject or to check if the library has access to a specific title. Once you find a film that you want to include in your online course, review the directions on the Adding Streaming Videos to Canvas page. For copyright compliance, the library recommends all streaming media be housed within a course shell (Canvas).
