New Streaming Video Trial

Now through the end of March, the library is offering trial access to the streaming video resource Ambrose Digital.  With so many students and faculty on our campus equipped with laptops and mobile devices, we're always looking for new web-based resources to connect our users with the content they need for teaching and learning.  We think Ambrose Digital fits this need perfectly, and we hope you'll give it a test drive and let us know what you think.

With videos covering a wide range of topics in the humanities, natural and health sciences, fine arts, and social sciences, Ambrose Digital offers something for everyone, and its many user-friendly features will appeal to students and faculty alike.

Videos are viewable on all devices, and all videos include synchronized closed captions that are fully searchable.  You can even begin playing a program at the segment in which your search term first appears in the captions.  Students using Ambrose Digital for research will love the citation tool, which provides citation information for a given video in eight different citation styles.  Faculty will appreciate the ease with which both full programs and shorter clips can be integrated into Seton Hill's online course management system.

The entire catalog of Ambrose videos are available during the trial period at the following link:

Give Ambrose Digital a try and let us know if you like it.  We think you will!
