The University at Buffalo Libraries has secured the licensing to stream hundreds of titles directly from the library catalog as well as in several different databases. For more information, please refer to Streaming Media in the UB Libraries.

If you need access to A/V (Audio Visual) materials, please contact Michael Kankiewicz, Head of Multimedia Collections, to determine if the material is available via streaming.

Streaming Databases

UB Libraries offers both AVON and Kanopy for streaming videos, which give access to films, documentaries, and training videos in a variety of disciplines. Users can search the database of available videos, or narrow by subject area.

Remember to promote citing videos that students may use for reference in papers, projects or presentations! For citation assistance, consult the Research Guide from Mount Saint Mary College Library.
