The Libraries provide ready access to thousands of streaming videos covering all kinds of subjects, including some feature films, through a number of licensed collections. Instructors can link to these videos in their Laulima courses.
Like electronic books, streaming video records are found through the Library Catalog or through OneSearch.
You can use a catalog keyword search to find videos on various topics. For example, combine the phrase "streaming video" with a word or phrase.
From the search results, click a title to see the full record. (On results screens, streaming videos are identified with "Internet access" as a location and a media icon .). From the full record, right-click and copy the link labeled "View streaming video" or "View film".
In addition to searching the catalog, you can directly visit the video collection websites to browse or search for titles.
Do not copy video URLs from your browser's address bar and try to share them. Right-click and copy the link from the library catalog record or the persistent link in a video collection description. Make sure the URL looks something like this : http://digital.films.com.eres.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/PortalViewVideo.aspx?xtid=32432
For more information on these and other streaming video options, see the Sinclair Library: Online Video Resources guide.
