How do I access a video through the database


The DiPietro Library subscribes to three different video databases, Academic Video Online (AVON), Swank, and Kanopy, as well as videos that are incorporated into other databases (i.e. Academic Search Complete, ProQuest Central, and Access Physiotherapy.)

Information on the three main providers and how to embed them in Canvas can be found on the Streaming Video Guide.

Swank and Kanopy only have access to videos we have licensed through those platforms.  If you are looking for something else, we have a wide-ranging collection of DVDs and you can check out an external DVD Player from the Circulation Desk.

Please speak to someone at the Reference Desk for more information.

To watch a video on one of these sites:

  • Find the database on our A-Z list
  • Search for the video you want to watch
