VAST: Academic Video Online, which we recently told you about as a trial database, has now been added to our collection!
VAST: Academic Video Online contains more than 20,000 full length titles, including 3,000 exclusive titles not available elsewhere.
A few neat features:
- As a video plays, a transcript scrolls, and what's being spoken is highlighted. Transcripts are searchable.
- Students and instructors can make custom clips, name them, and annotate them. Clips can then be placed into personal playlists, included in course folders to share and post online, cited in papers, and embedded on websites.
- Citations you can export in Chicago, MLA and APA formats.
- Content from A&E, the BBC, RCA and more.
