ProQuest Alexander Street American History In Video

Vendor: ProQuest

This history video product is an excellent value! Users experience hundreds of hours of streaming video right from their desktop. Video descriptions and transcripts are searchable, and the collection is priced at a fraction of what it would cost to buy the videos individually.

People who witnessed historic moments—either in real time or on film—remember how they felt when they saw the helicopter pushed off the USS Blue Ridge carrier at the Fall of Saigon in April of 1975, or when they heard the emotion in Herbert Morrison’s voice as he described the crash of the Hindenburg in 1937. These and tens of thousands of other moments in history can now be experienced through American History in Video. A landmark collection—the largest of its kind—American History in Video will enrich any history program and will see wide use across the curriculum. At completion, this online collection will include more than 2,000 hours of streaming video—more than 5,000 titles in all.

Streaming is easy. No videos to check in and out, no shelves to stock, no lost or damaged DVDs to deal with. A broadband connection and a standard Web browser are all you need, and the collection works equally well on both PCs and Macs.

Your patrons will love being able to access these videos 24/7 without leaving their computers, and you will love saving time, space, and money.
