American History in Video collection now available

American History in Video offers more than 5,000 videos covering many aspects of U.S. history. This collection is a fine mix of newsreels or short films detailing events as they happened and well-produced documentaries from The History Channel, PBS, A&E, and others.

Not only does this database offer great content, but it also offers great flexibility for teaching. Transcripts are provided, Playlists can be created and even clips can be cut to show classes.

More information about this collection is available from the provider Alexander Street Press.
