Video Resources

(This was originally posted by Linda Wapelhorst on 12/19 in Butler Online's Advent Calendar)

Visitors to Documentary Tube can select from twenty-two categories of documentaries including art, health, science, travel, history, and several others. The menu includes a cover picture as well as a brief blurb describing the content of the movie. Each week, the website features the top 100 documentaries being viewed. Some are basically entertaining while others present emotionally-charged issues. There is also a search feature.World News Presents: This Day in History is presented by ABC News and, as the title suggests, provides a short video about what happened on a given day in history. For instance, on December 10 the video is "Civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. accepts the Nobel Peace Prize".
