The Prairie State library has recently subscribed to the great new database Films on Demand, which provides educational films to help you with whatever academic subject you’re studying. With films from trusted sources like PBS, The History Channel, and the BBC, this isn’t just a collection of old obscure documentaries, and you might be able to really wow your professor with what you find.
Create a personalized account and you can save your favorite movies and even create specialized playlists to share with your study group or your whole class.
