Need short video clips for your courses/students on health or business topics? We have a bunch in our ProQuest PQCentral database for you to use!


  1. Open PQCentral database from ProQuest
  2. Switch to Advanced Search
  3. Enter your search term (or you can leave the box blank to see a complete list of available videos…but the list is over 19,000 items).  BEFORE searching, limit your search to source types that are Audio & Visual Works.
  4. Select the video you want to watch/use from the list by clicking on the title.
  5. To play the video, press the white arrow. To find a permanent URL to the video, scroll down and copy/paste the URL into your email or course. To download the video click on Video download (.flv) or (.mp4).
  6. is the document URL for the video above. Note: I have found downloading and then playing the video works best if you do not have a robust internet connection.
