Docuseek2, a leading distributor of documentary films in the education space, has teamed with Alexander Street, a ProQuest company, to bring their second edition collection of 1,800 titles to researchers and educators. The popularity of high-quality documentaries for research and learning is growing as students and faculty increasingly rely on these resources for deeper understanding of events. Now, libraries can quickly and affordably expand their collections to include premier documentaries.
The Docuseek2 Complete Collection: Second Edition curates the best documentaries in the sciences, humanities, history, political science, the arts and more. The collection provides exclusive access to content from Bullfrog Films, Icarus Films (including The Fanlight Collection and dGenerate Films), Kartemquin Films, the National Film Board of Canada, MediaStorm, KimStim, Scorpion TV and Terra Nova Films. Films from the BBC, CBC, Television Trust for the Environment, and independent filmmakers from around the world are also included.
Via Alexander Street's streaming video platform, Docuseek2 works are enhanced for classroom and research use. For example, synchronous, searchable scrolling transcripts simplify discovery by taking the user directly to the relevant segments of the film. The clip-making tool allows users to annotate and embed clips in their LMS, papers and assignments. Faculty can create playlists that are easily accessible within a syllabus or LMS.
