The Lafayette Libraries have begun a subscription to Academic Video Online (AVON), a service providing streaming access to over 66,000 videos. The titles in AVON include documentaries, newsreels, feature films, interviews, and performances, and range across a variety of disciplines, topics, and geographical regions.
The Libraries have begun this subscription with an eye towards replacing Films on Demand (FoD), which is similar in scope but provides nearly half as many titles at more the double the cost of AVON. We expect access to FoD to cease in June 2020, so we ask instructors who teach with videos from FoD to use the current Spring semester to begin making the transition from FoD to AVON. This may include:
We recognize that this is a substantial change and will be happy to work closely with instructors to make the transition as smooth as possible. Please contact Ben Jahre, Head of Electronic Resources, with questions or to request assistance: email@example.com or 610-330-5631.
