MCC Libraries' Super Search: Videos

Search the MCC Libraries Catalog for Videos

Search through our many films in the box below. This search box will limit your results to only films. We recommend that you also explore each platform as they have curated collections and categories in which you may discover films of even more relevance to your interests.  Films are added to these platforms everyday!  You never know what you might find!


Search for Videos by Platform

Academic Video Online (AVON) allows you to search over 70,000 video titles spanning a wide range of subject areas, including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more. These videos include documentaries, interviews, feature films, performances, news programs and newsreels, commercials, theatrical performances, demonstrations, and raw footage within the collection. Of these, thousands are award-winning films, including Academy®, Emmy®, and Peabody® winners. The addition of the Theatre Performance and Design Collection includes National Theatre, production recordings, documents, scripts, designs, sketches, and more.
