Browsing for business subjects in the Films on Demand database

If you have some broad topics that you are looking for it might be easier to browse the Films on Demand (FOD) database than to search it.  Here's how:

1. Begin at the library homepage:

2. Click the link for "Articles / Databases"

3. Use the pull-down menu labeled "Know the database you want?" to choose: Films on Demand

4.  If prompted, log in using your last name (in the top box) and (in the second box) your Webster 7-digit ID number

5.  Use the Menu near the top left corner of the page to link to > Browse Videos > By Subject  (or, scroll down the FOD homepage page to the "Browse Subjects" section)

Films on Demand menu and header

6.  Under the category Business & Economics, you might want to focus by selecting a sub-category, for example, Ethics & Business Law

7A. Browse the videos, or

7B. If the category or sub-category contains a large number of videos, try searching at this point, using the search box on the header.  We suggest that you:

  • begin by searching a single, broad subject within the sub-category.  For example, in the Ethics & Business Law category, use  "business law" or privacy as your keyword or phrase
  • enclose phrases in double quotation marks, e.g. "business law"
  • If FOD erases your category selection from the search results, you may activate it by selecting an appropriate subject filter on the right.

Business video databases

Please note: Streaming videos from Entrepreneurial Studies Source and Business Source Complete are not included in the catalog so you must search the database to find them.

Videos in EBSCO business databases

Two Ebscohost business databases, Entrepreneurial Studies Source and Business Source Complete also contain videos.  These videos are not listed in the library catalog, so these databases must be searched individually.  Here's how:

video search in business databases

1. Login to one of the databases.

2. From the More menu, select Business Videos/Images.

3. In the “Limit your results” section found below the search box(es),

  • Uncheck the box labeled Image Quick View Collection
