Faculty Services: Media Services

Information about library services available to faculty.

Media Collections

All videos in the media collection are in the library catalog. You may search just the media collection by limiting your search to “Media Collection.” This is done from the “limit by” button at the bottom of the main catalog screen.

Please note that a title may be “available” in the catalog, but in a stage of processing and temporarily unavailable. So, it is always a good idea to call ahead to see if a video is actually available at the library, before making a trip or a request. You may call or email Jared Seay directly (843.953.1428 or seayj@cofc.edu) or call the Infodesk (843.953.8000) to make such an inquiry. 

College of Charleston faculty, staff and students who present a current College of Charleston ID card may check- out a maximum of 3 videos at any one time for a maximum of  3 days.

Faculty members  from other institutions may not check out Media Collections materials, though they may view the materials within Media Collections during normal business hours.

Streaming Services

Video Streaming

Our video streaming collections offer thousands of videos from a variety of sources including documentaries, newsreels, television specials, and internet videos (ex: TED videos). 

Subjects cover a wide range including (but not restricted to) history, business, philosophy, sociology, psychology, technology and education.  These services allow the user to organize videos and segments into folders and playlists and favorites and can be embedded in OAKS course pages or websites.  This allows specific titles or groups of segments (chapters within a title) to be reorganized and purposed for specific class projects or research needs.   Each video can be viewed in multiple choices of quality (screen size) for both desktop and projection.  Most titles contain searchable / downloadable transcripts that allow more precise searching and documentation.

These services can be accessed by students and faculty from the library's A-Z Databases list or by using the links below.

Audio Streaming

The library offers several streaming audio collections.
