Streaming Video: Films on Demand


Murphy Library's largest streaming video collection, Films on Demand from Infobase contains tens of thousands of full-length videos covering a wide array of subjects including health, medicine, science, mathematics, business, economics, humanities, social sciences, and archival films and newsreels. Films are produced by companies such as Nova, BBC, the History Channel, Arts & Entertainment, PBS, Cambridge Educational and many more. Creating an account in Films on Demand allows you to organize and bookmark clips, share playlists, personalize folders, and more.

This collection is dynamic, with new titles added every month and select titles removed twice a year.


Closed captioning and interactive transcripts are available for most of the videos on Films on Demand. All videos have at least one of these options.
