Who should use it?
Students and faculty looking to support their learning experience with major motion pictures and documentaries. These films can be watched individually, used for group classroom viewing, and assigned in a Learning Management System.
Why use a database?
When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
