Answer

You can now find videos by using SuperSearch! Simply put in your search keywords, and SuperSearch will search transcripts of videos. If there is a match, a Video Recording icon will appear next to the resource. You can also limit by source type buy using the limiters on the left side of the page, chosing videos.

The library offers several databases geared toward videos that are more academic in nature. Sorry, no Brad Pitt! You can find all of these in alphabetical order under the Find a Database under the SuperSearch box on the library homepage. This is only a small selection.  A larger list can be found in the Databases by Subject & Type list (choose Multimedia) under the SuperSearch box.
