How to find streaming videos and DVDs, create playlists and clips, and more

Contents of this guide

This guide provides tips, tools, and techniques for finding videos, creating clips and playlists, and linking to videos.

When linking video content from a library database, it is important to use a Permalink or "share" link rather than the URL in the address bar. There are multiple ways to access the permalink in a database, each platform has a slightly different look and access to the links.

A special note regarding Kanopy: please refer to the Kanopy tab for more information on the prices for titles and how faculty can request a title for required course viewing.

For specific questions on linking or a regarding our video collections, please contact Kelly Denzer at
