Videos & Streaming Media: Home


Auraria Library provides access to thousands of videos in streaming, DVD, and VHS formats.

Use this guide to learn how to find videos through Auraria Library databases and other sources to support your teaching, research, and class assignments.

How to Watch Videos

View streaming videos 24/7 anywhere you have Internet access!

For DVDs, Determine the location of a DVD through Start My Research (see to the right). Most DVDs are located on the 1st floor of the library. Instructors and faculty can check out all DVDs. Students can check out most DVDs, but DVDs that are on reserve can only be watched in the library. 

Find Videos via Start My Research

The fastest way to find videos Auraria Library has access to is by using the Start My Research search box on Auraria Library's homepage.

  1. Type in the title of a video or keywords that describe your subject. Example searches:
    • Civil War
    • sustainable food
    • counseling teenagers
    • hip hop
  2. Then click "Media Only" under the search box. This limits your search to streaming videos, DVDs, streaming audio, and CDs. 
  3. Click Search.
  4. On the results page, the icon to the left of a title indicates if the item is online. Under the title and description, you can determine if an item is a Streaming Video, Streaming Audio, DVD, or other media type. If the item is online, click on the title to get immediate access!
  5. If you want to limit results to streaming videos only, on the results page on the left side of the page under Content Type, uncheck all content types that are not Streaming Video.
