  • Unlimited access to all 67,000 titles in the AVON collection (Academic Video Online "channel") during the subscription (single, fixed cost for entire academic year)

Platform Notes

  • Multiple keyword searches recommended

Note: in the new platform, subject terms are not uniformly applied across the videos, so the "subject:" search feature does not  necessarily retrieve all videos on a topic, and their filtering and grouping features are less comprehensive than in their previous platform. Conducting multiple keyword searches is recommended unless or until more robust tools (consistent keywords or subjects, collections and groupings, or search tools) are in place.
