American History in Video (through Alexander Street) provides the largest and richest collection of video available online for the study of American history, with 2,000 hours and more than 5,000 titles.
The Library collects all different types of materials that can be useful to all of your projects, whether it's writing a paper or creating visual works. Whenever you're working on a project and you have a question and need to look for information, you're doing research. We're THE experts in research of all types!
We curate our materials - we're always looking materials that have reliable and accurate information. We also work hard to find materials that help you to create works without you needing to do extensive copyright research to see if you can use that image, sound effect, song or music track in your project.
We also provide personal service! Beat that, Google! You can stop by any time the Library is open or you can email our staff to ask for information. It doesn't matter if your question is short and quick or long and involved - we love helping connect you with the materials that will help you create an amazing project!
When you search in Google, you're getting a lot of results - some may be useful and some may be horribly wrong, but you might not know it. The kind of information you find in our library is not the same as you find on the Internet. When you use any of the Library resources, you save yourself time because our resources are targeted to the curriculum you're studying. You don't have to wade through lots of dubious pages that might be slickly designed, but don't have exactly what you're looking for or give you the wrong information.
