Featured Database - VAST: Academic Video Online

VAST: Academic Video Online is one of the OCC Library’s newest databases, offering a growing selection of over 20,000 streaming videos.  The videos cover a broad range of subject areas and include documentaries, interviews, performances, news programs and newsreels, field recordings, commercials, and raw footage.

The new VAST interface makes it easy to browse or search the collection. You might also create a personal account to take advantage of some of the special features of the database, such as saving video clips and creating playlists to share with others.

See an introductory video to VAST, or go to the datbase now to take a look at what VAST has to offer.
