The VAST Database
Thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library, the library has begun a one-year trial subscription to VAST: Academic Video Online. Produced by Alexander Street Press, VAST contains more than 17,000 full-length videos with plans to grow to more than 20,000 videos within a year.
VAST’s goal is to deliver key films (documentaries, interviews, performances, news programs, and more) appropriate for an undergraduate curriculum. Almost every department should find something useful in the VAST database.
You can search by keyword, title, series, etc. or browse by title, authors, or topics. Searches may be limited to specific disciplines. Transcripts are also available for most films. Check out this new resource below or find it in our A to Z Database List.
