SERVICE ALERT: Blommer Science Library will be closed on Monday, December 22.
With the addition of several streaming media collections, the Library's collection of online video has now surpassed the number of DVDs and tapes available. Films on Demand includes 10,000 streaming documentaries, educational films and instructional videos from PBS series like American Experience, Frontline, Ken Burns's Jazz and The Civil War, and over 300 titles in The Bill Moyers Collection. Independent filmmakers are also well represented; Georgetown professor Benjamin Harbert's film Follow Me Down: Portraits of Louisiana Prison Musicians is available for free once you log in with your Georgetown NetID.
Filmakers Library is another large streaming video library with 2,000 documentaries on race and gender studies, human rights, global studies, multiculturalism, international relations, the environment, bioethics, health, political science and current events, psychology, arts, literature and more. While you are watching one of the many titles in these collections, notice that the transcripts for most films are also available, making quoting them a breeze.
