Art History: Videos

Guide to finding information on historical and current art and architecture.

Videos in the Library and Online

Videos in the TMCC Library are available in DVD format (must be viewed in the library or checked out by instructors) or are in VHS format, most of which may be checked out of the library.


The databases listed in this Research Guide are available only to Truckee Meadows Community College students, faculty and staff. You will need your TMCC credentials (Username and Password) to access them off-campus.

The Films on Demand database provides streaming videos suitable for classroom use.  A significant portion of the Films on Demand database collection is in art and history topics.  It is easier to browse the collection than to search this small database by keyword.

Videos in the History in Context Databases

U.S. History in Context and World History in Context may include occasional videos among the reference material, peer-reviewed journals, primary sources, and other materials in these very large databases.  Search by topic first, then check to see if any videos are listed in the sources retrieved.
