Library Today: New Video Database Available

The UST Media Resources Collection is offering a new subscription of Ambrose Video, a database of electronic videos. One hundred full-length titles are available to be used in the classroom or for individual viewing via a Web browser. The films can be accessed on or off campus (off-campus users will need to log in with their UST username and password) via a broadband, high-speed Internet connection – i.e., cable modem or DSL.

The subject areas covered in this database are: American history, American literature, art history, theology, sciences and all the BBC Shakespeare plays. It is available via the Media Resources Collection, from the library’s A-Z Databases list or directly from Ambrose Video.

For more information contact Cindy Badilla-Melendez, UST media resources librarian, (651) 962-5464.
