There are different search options available for finding streaming videos:

From the FrogScholar tab at enter search terms in the search box, then click SEARCH. At the results screen select Material Type "Videos," then select just streaming videos with the "Availability" filter's "online" option. Be sure to sign in using your TCU login in order to fully access online content.

Sample search using the FrogScholar search box (the "Material Type" filter doesn't appear in this example's left column because it had already been selected - thus "Videos" appears at the top left, under "Active filters")

The Advanced Search tab at allows you to pre-enter multiple search criteria up-front. Select the "Library Catalog" button, type in your search terms (possibly selecting drop-down filters for Title, subject or other criteria, if desired) and select Material Type "Video/Film." At the results screen select Availability filter "Available online."

  Sample search using Advanced Search - to see the entire search, click the downward-pointing arrow on the right side of the "Search criteria" box, above the results list

Browse or search for streaming videos in various databases starting from the Databases tab's Video list, off the TCU Library home page, or select suitable tabs in the Video Resources Guide, such as Video from databases, a curated list of the library's video databases. Each database has its own search interface.
