Content within AVON can be fluid – new videos are added over time, and occasionally titles are removed.  The Library, Museums and Press has been able to purchase the following collections, ensuring that the content within them will continue to be available into the future.  You may choose to search and browse these collections directly, however you may find newer content by searching related keywords in the full AVON collection.

Subject and Publisher Searching

AVON provides filtered searching options that allow you to browse video content by subject, producer, content type, and other features.  You can leverage these search filters to create a search that is targeted for the types of video content you or your students find most useful.  (If you would like assistance in developing your search, contact the Film & Video Collection Librarian.)  Some suggested searches can be found below.
