Films on Demand

You will not find the movies suggested for your movie paper assignment in Films on Demand.  You will find documentaries and educational films, which might be useful in research related to this course, but not a movie for your movie paper assignment.  If you choose "Browse Videos" from the menu at the upper left of the home screen, you'll see American Government listed as a subtopic of Political Science. Watch segments or entire titles such as those shown below.


Tips for using Films on Demand

  • Search - When you search for a term you will see results for full videos, segments, and series.  Using options on the right you can narrow your results by date, type of film, or subject. 
  • Browse - You can browse subject titles by choosing the Subject Index  from the menu at the upper left of the page.  You can then choose a broad category or limit your results to a subcategory. 
  • Transcripts - Many titles provide transcripts (look at the tabs in the box to the right) which can be helpful when citing. Some also allow searching within a transcript to more easily find relevant information, however you need to scroll through the transcript to look for highlighted terms.  It does not automatically skip to them.
