MEF Films

MEF Streaming Media

Atkins Library recently acquired access to MEF (Media Education Foundation) streaming video.  MEF is a multi-disciplinary collection of documentary and educational films with a focus on societies, politics, culture and mass media in America.  Categories of film include The Arts, Business/Training, Media/Communication, Sciences, Humanities, and Teacher Education (K-12).

Other streaming media content that you can incorporate into your courses include several collections from Alexander Street Press and the PBS video collection.

Sharing Videos with Students

All of these films are accessible from off-campus.  Many of these titles are already searchable in the library catalog and will include the permalink to share with your students (ex. http://uncc.worldcat.org/oclc/829362611).
