Film collections include Biology, Philosophy & Religion, History Psychology and more. Features on the home page include: "Most Popular" and "Recently Added" in addition to "Featured Producers" such as ABC, the BBC, American Experience and more.
FOD is accessible from the "Databases" tab on the Library homepage. No username or password is required to use the database on campus.

The "Create Account" feature is located in the upper right corner of the Films on Demand main page. This allows you to customize and save segments from the longer versions available. Segments can be embedded in PowerPoint or Canvas presentations.
