AVON delivers ~68,000 titles spanning a range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more. See the “channels” list with links below.
Videos in the database are primarily academic and related to courses and programs, and formats include: documentaries, interviews, feature films, performances, news programs and newsreels, demonstrations, and raw footage, previously unavailable archival material, thousands of award-winning films, including Academy®, Emmy®, and Peabody® winners. New material is added regularly.
