Harold B. Lee Library acquires new video database


A new video database is available to BYU faculty and students at the Harold B. Lee Library.

Students and faculty can access the database with a BYU login from any computer, on or off campus.  The videos come from Films Media Group, a source of high-quality video and multimedia for academic, vocation and life-skills content.

Library communications manager, Roger Layton said the new database contains over 8,000 videos covering a variety of subjects.

“There is something for everyone in the collection,” Layton said.

Topics covered in the database include anthropology, art and architecture, business and economics, careers, technology, criminal justice, education, environmental science, consumer sciences, counseling and health.

“Students are going to discover a great resource that will improve their presentations,” Layton said.  “It’s also a great way to watch free documentaries.”

Layton said acquiring the database was driven by the faculty at BYU. Faculty members can use the database content in class, as well as assigning their students to watch segments.

“This database is a real game changer,” Layton said.
