Texas State students have access to thousands of resources at Alkek Library, but some may not be aware another source of information is available through streaming video services.
The library both owns and has access through subscription to about 5,000 streaming videos from 34 databases covering topics from architecture and art to psychology and world history.
Scott Pope, librarian, said there is no limit to how many videos students can watch.
“The videos use the same technology as YouTube. So, more than one student can watch a particular video at one time,” Pope said. “Students can get a lot of information without having to check out several videos from the library, and it is definitely an advantage to have for the Round Rock campus and distance-learning programs.”
