Ethnographic Video Online contains over 1600 films, primarily ethnographic documentaries and interviews of anthropologists. The collection covers every region of the world and features the work of many of the most influential documentary filmmakers of the 20th century, including previously unreleased raw footage, field notes and study guides. Documentaries from key filmmakers such as John Marshall, Timothy Ash, Robert Gardner, David MacDougall, John Bishop, David Plath, and others provide long-term perspectives on the study of regions and cultures, as well as the historical development of documentary film itself. Each film includes a transcript. Clips and playlists can be created, saved and shared. Videos can be downloaded to an Apple OS or Android phone, available for 48 hours.
This collection includes both Ethnographic Video Volume I and Ethnographic Video Volume II. Voulme II provides an additional 450 films, including films from a number of new publishers and distributors, such as the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), ZED, and Documentary Educational Resources (DER)

A growing and changing collection of 70,000+ e-books in many different academic subject areas, ebrary Academic Complete includes mainly secondary works from university presses and other academic publishers first published in recent decades, but also selected classic works dating as far back as William Harvey's Circulation of the Blood, originally published in 1628. Nearly all works are in the English language, though some are in other European languages (German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch).
ebrary content can be downloaded using the free Adobe Digital Editions software to most devices including the Nook, iPad, iPhone, etc., but not the Kindle or Kobo Vox. For instructions go to: support.ebrary.com/category/english/download.
Note: Printing and downloading from most of these books is limited to a maximum of "up to 60 pages" per book, or less--the page number limit for printing and downloading varies from book to book, and may be as low as 10 pages. Currently, there is no way to tell whether the printing/downloading page number limit for a particular book is less than the standard 60 page maximum other than by trying to print or download a certain number of pages and seeing if you get an error message or not. The dialog box that appears when printing or downloading always states (sometimes misleadingly) that a "maximum of 60 pages" applies, even when in fact the maximum is lower. For more information, see the ebrary Support Center website.
