UNT students, faculty and staff have access to online videos through subscription databases managed by the UNT Libraries. The majority of these online videos can be found by searching the UNT Libraries Catalog.
A keyword search is a basic way to search for online media on a particular topic. The method demonstrated below will look for the topic(s) you enter in all fields (i.e., title, author, subject headings, notes, etc.) of an item's record, limited to records that contain "online media". Keyword searches give you lots of search results, but many won't be relevant to your topic.
The Media Library Advanced Search page allows users to limit their search results to specific audiovisual formats.
Browse Specific Online Media Resources
If you would like to browse any of the online media resources available through the UNT Library, select Databases from the UNT Libraries homepage. You may search for any of our online media resources by name or select the resource from the drop-down to navigate to it directly.
You can also search for all Online Video resources by selecting 'Online Video' in the "about 600" electronic resources in the database list:
Or you can go to the library's A-Z Databases: Online Video page: https://guides.library.unt.edu/az.php?t=35326
Can't Find an Online Video?
While the majority of subscription online videos can be found by searching the library catalog, some films are not listed in the catalog. Reasons may include:
If you cannot find a particular film you have been assigned to view, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNT Faculty: Is there a film you need for online instruction that is not currently available online? To request that a new film be added to the collection, complete the Streaming Media Faculty Request Form.
Permission must be obtained from the rights holder in order to put a full video online. Obtaining this permission often takes several months, so please contact us at least one full semester in advance with your request. Contact us as early as possible when planning an online course that will include multiple online film components.
Not all films can be licensed for online use. In these situations, the Libraries will work with the instructor to find an alternative solution.
Problems accessing an online video?

Accessing from off campus?
When you are off campus and try to access licensed resources, you will be redirected to a log in page asking for your UNT EUID and password. If problems getting access persist, try logging in to the UNT virtual private network.
