ProQuest Platform: Document View - Videos

Videos on ProQuest

If your library has subscription video content from Academic Video Online (AVON), you can now search and view your AVON videos on the ProQuest Platform. If you cross-search all of the content on the ProQuest platform, you'll see that AVON is available as a selectable database. You can choose to search it individually from the Databases tab or by clicking to search all databases. Your library may also have a login link that automatically selects all your ProQuest databases for you. For more information view our training video on the updates to video and ebook content here below.

AVON videos appear alongside your other ProQuest content in the results page. Selecting an AVON record takes you to the unique Document View for the video. The updated view and video player are integrated into ProQuest and mirrors the experience that you have from AVON without having to leave ProQuest. Please note that currently we do not support the Clips and Playlist feature in ProQuest, but this will be added at a later date. AVON records can be added to your My Research account within ProQuest. For the Clips and Playlist feature, please view the video in the AVON Alexander Street Video platform. 


The unique AVON Video features include the following:

1. Transcript:  View the transcript. While the video plays, the corresponding sections of the transcript are highlighted. You can also search the transcript for your relevant keywords/topics. 

2. Embed:  you can find in this section the permanent link of the video and the code to be embedded in your LMS or other website.

3. Video Player: The video plays inside the Document View (alongside the traditional document features such as the Abstract, Document Details, and Related items list).  The video controller includes Play/Pause, Mute, Volume control, Closed-Captioning (On-screen transcript), Quality level adjustments, and Full screen mode

4. Like other traditional documents in ProQuest, you can Cite, Email, Print, and in the All Options section you will be able to Save the video in your cloud accounts. or you can select the record to add to your Selected items list and move a copy to your My Research account and Export to RefWorks. You'll also find other recommended videos from the Related items list.
