Finding Digital Videos

An Undergraduate Library guide to finding digital video and other digital media.


This guide is a list of publicly-available online films, video, shorts, documentaries, and other digital videos.

For more information on locating streaming video in the University of Illinois' collection, please visit our page on Finding Films and Videos.

Most of the links in this guide are for educational resources. Here are some suggestions if you are looking for user generated content:

We recommend YouTube EDU for short educational videos, Library of Congress for updates on historical and governmental information, The Brain Scoop for women in science, natural history, and biology, and CrashCourse for a little bit of everything.

Always be mindful of copyright restrictions, and if you have any questions about the use of videos, take a look at this Copyright Reference Guide or Ask a Librarian!
