Welcome to the NWACC Library's Streaming Media Guide
About this Guide
This Library Guide provides basic information on streaming video resources available at Northwest Arkansas Community College through the Pauline Whitaker Library.
We provide access to streaming music and videos through four major providers:
- Naxos Music Library
- Academic Video Online
- Swank Digital Campus
If what you need is not available in the four resources listed above, there are a few other library databases that contain streaming content, some films are available at open access sites, and if necessary the library can pursue purchasing streaming rights from other providers.
This guide organizes these additional resources into the following broad categories:
- Other Library Collections
- Internet Sites
- What you need to know about closed captioning
Please note: All streaming media in NWACC Library's collections are purchased or licensed content, limited to current NWACC students, faculty, and staff. While film distributors use a variety of hosting systems and platforms, please realize that some distributors do not provide their own hosting options, and we do not have the infrastructure to host streaming content. Therefore we can only purchase hosted streaming media at this time. All media, audio or video, in collections licensed by the NWACC Library can be used in Canvas, the Learning Management platform. For assistance with providing permalinks or embedded links to streaming content please contact the eLearning Librarian, Nithin Lakshmana. If you are unable to access an audio or video we have purchased or licensed, please contact the library at the Ask Us! link immediately to the left of this text box.
