Today, nearly 18,000 online videos in three video collections are available at Leeward. Two weeks ago I introduced you to Kanopy, the newest collection of high-quality streaming videos available from the Library. This week I’d like to reintroduce you to two specialized online video collections.
A collection of over 260 documentaries, primary source footage, and feature films from Hawaii, Oceania, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Some notable titles include Slack Key: The Hawaiian Way, Waikiki: Riding the Waves of Change, Keepers of the Flame: The Legacy of Three Hawaiian Women, and Kumu Hina.
Over 3,500 videos in two collections focusing on History and Careers & Job Search. The brand-new search platform provides a functional and attractive interface to users. The Subject Index includes an extensive breakdown of collection titles by category. The Library started with only two subject collections but we’re open to acquiring additional ones. Just contact us if you like what you see but want more content in your discipline or subject area.
Please have a look at these great video resources because I think you’ll like what you see. Feel free to share your comments or suggestions with me or any librarian. We want to hear from you!
