The films included are produced by various companies, including Films for the Humanities and Sciences, PBS, ABC, NBC, BBC, History Channel, A&E, Biography Channel, Cambridge Educational, and others. Films are broken into topic segment with keyword-rich descriptions, making it easy to search and quickly retrieve relevant clips. Films On Demand simplifies the use of educational video in teaching and learning, making it easy to share playlists and embed segments in course management systems. Libraries will need to consider both the cost and accessibility tradeoffs between purchasing videos in tangible media and purchasing or licensing annual access to streaming video.
