American History in Video

The Baron-Forness Library has a new database, American History in Video. This database has films related to American History from the History Channel, PBS, and other services. The collection is always growing.

You can access these films both on and off campus. Go to All E-Resources A-Z. Click on American History in Video. If you are off campus, first check with Help with off campus access. Follow the instructions to gain access.

Instructional faculty might find this useful to stream to their classrooms.
