Streaming Video Titles Now Available

UST Libraries now has access to a database of online videos called Films on Demand. An initial group of 20 films are available via an on-demand video stream from the Media Resources Collection’s Web site, the CLICnet library catalog, the Libraries’ Databases and Indexes page, or directly.
Videos from this pilot project are available for classroom or individual viewing via a Web browser and are accessible from on or off campus (off-campus users will need to log in with UST username and password) using broadband high speed (i.e., cable modem or DSL) Internet connections.
This pilot project will test whether streaming videos can better meet curricular needs of faculty wishing to assign in-class or asynchronous viewing and determine whether this mode of video delivery is feasible without excessive consumption of computer network bandwidth resources.
See the Web site for usage tips, including minimum computer, browser and media-player software requirements. If you have questions on how to access the videos or comments, how well this streaming video content meets your needs, and whether you think this effort should expand beyond a pilot project, contact Cindy Badilla-Melendez, UST media resources librarian, (651) 962-5464.
