Most consumers of web content are familiar with YouTube, Vimeo, and other free sources of streaming videos. These sites are really fun to browse and get a little lost in when you’ve got free time, but what about when you want to watch a video on an important topic in your area of research, for class assignments, or some other project where you need something authoritative and instructional?
ECU Libraries subscribe to a number of authoritative video sources that cover a huge variety of topics, including the health sciences. Some of these sources include:
AccessSurgery – shows the latest surgical techniques
Counseling and Therapy in Video – view counseling sessions and techniques, lectures and interviews
Nurse Theorists: Portraits of Excellence – interviews and histories on nursing’s premiere scholars
Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video – videos on injury assessment and treatment
Films on Demand – covers a large subject area, but includes films from the likes of PBS, HBO, and other credible sources on health sciences topics
Another excellent aspect of these video streaming services is that they can be accessed from off-campus with a PirateID and many provide a direct link to the actual videos which makes them easy to link from within BlackBoard or a class website.
