Finding Media through our Website

Finding Streaming Media Through a Summon Search

There are many ways of finding media through our website.  We have quite a number of physical items, but I want to emphasize how to find electronic items through our catalog in this section.

1)Go to

2)Click on Advanced

3)Find the box that says "Content Type", and scroll down to the boxes next to Streaming Audio, Streaming Audiobookx, and Streaming Video.

4)Click on any or all of those.

I clicked on Streaming VIdeo.  I scrolled back to the top of the page and searched for Ken Burns Civil War. After clicking a relevant link or two, I got to this page, that listed the videos I'd like to see:,language%3DEN&svc_dat=CTO&u.ignore_date_coverage=true&vid=01LIBU_INST:Services.

I hope this helps.  Happy searching!
