Business Videos: Getting Started; Films on Demand

A guide for faculty and students on finding business-related videos in UST Libraries' subscription databases.


This guide will help you locate videos in our various subscription databases and in our DVD collection. Use the tabs to explore which of our video collections contain business & economics videos, and see tips on how to find them.

Summon Video Search

Use this scoped Summon search to find DVDs and streaming video; search across our collections on your business topic by keyword.

Linking to Videos

Linking to streaming videos can be a little tricky. Each vendor builds links in a different way; the URL in the browser's address bar may or may not work. In the video's entry in the database, look for the phrase "permanent link" or similar phrasing.  To ensure that links will work off-campus, make sure the URL includes the string "". For more on this, see our guide to persistent links.
