What is FMG - Films on Demand?

                              

FMG - Films on Demand and Alexander Street Press videos are collections of high-quality educational streaming videos. You can view videos anytime, anywhere there is an internet connection! Films on Demand and Alexander Street Press can be accessed through the UCF Libraries' databases. You will need your NID to access films from off-campus.

Features include:

  • Users can create & share playlists
  • View video transcripts
  • Play entire videos or clips
  • Distinct URL for linking in syllabi, Webcourses, or other Webpages

Rosen Library has been adding streaming video with hospitality content to the collection. While streaming videos within the hospitality industry are limited at this time, we are continually working to add a diverse collection of streaming and traditional video to our collection.
