Searching and Tutorials

When searching using the Library website (Library Search) you will get a list of items that match your search terms.

You will be able to use the "Refine Results" to narrow the list to get exactly what you need.

When looking for only video materials, use the "Source Type" section and click "Show More" if you do not see Video as a tick box on the list.

When you see the Video selection, click the box to the left, then click Update to save your selection.

The results list will now show you only those items that are video.







Searching on CBC Curio (accessed from the A-Z List of e-Resources)


Input your search term.  A list of items related to your search term will appear.  From that list, select the item you would like to use (you can preview it first), click More Details

Once you see more information about the video you will see a Share link, click on that link to see the Permalink you will need to add to your document or the Embed Code that will allow you to embed the video into Brightspace/D2L.  Please be aware that not all resources behave the same way.


Copy the Permalink or Embed Code and paste as needed for your appropriate method.

Video materials will appear on your results list when performing a search for library materials using the Library webpage.

If accessing the resource using the A-Z List of Resources you will be directed to the main search box of the resource.  At this point you may select a type of movie to see the titles within that type or you may search for a specific movie.

To see a list of all current titles available, go to the bottom of the page and select the All Titles link.  This will direct you to a title by title list in year order, most current first.

After finding your item in Library Search, click on the item record title to see more information. 
That information will look like this:
