Ethnographic Video OnlineFeatured Resource: Ethnographic Video Online

A comprehensive online resource for the visual study of human culture and behavior and the largest streaming video collection of its kind, Ethnographic Video Online contains more than 500 hours of classic and contemporary documentaries produced by leading video producers in the discipline; previously unpublished footage from working anthropologists and ethnographers in the field; and select feature films. The collection will grow to 750 hours by completion. Wherever possible, videos include accompanying field notes, liner notes, filmmaker biographies, related articles, study guides, and other context-enhancing, full-text materials. Publishing partners include Documentary Educational Resources (DER), Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) and other leading video content providers in the discipline.

Sharing Videos with Students

As with the library databases, your students can watch these videos from anywhere but they will need to login with their NinerNET username and password when trying to access them from off-campus. Below are several options for sharing these videos with your students:

  1. Copy the permalink for the specific video. Paste it in Moodle or an e-mail.
