The Edison Libraries recently acquired a new database called Films on Demand, which provides access to over 6,000 streaming videos. Films on Demand features educational films from the BBC, PBS, the History Channel, and many other major collections. Users can watch segments or the full title; embed the films into websites and PowerPoint presentations; and even access citations for each film in the MLA Citation Style. Films on Demand videos are available for free to all Edison students, staff, and faculty.
