An expanded agreement between ProQuest and BBC Learning, a division of BBC Studios, was announced. It gives libraries access to thousands of additional BBC Studios titles through the Academic Video Online subscription, the world’s largest streaming video subscription service curated for education. BBC Learning distributes some of the most popular video content in the academic space.

In the coming months, ProQuest will add more than 1,500 BBC Studios educational titles to Academic Video Online and will continue to add new titles in the future.  Available in high-quality streaming format for use in research and classrooms alike, the latest additions include topical films like “Borderlands: Life on the Line” and “Diana: 7 Days that Shook the World.”

These BBC Studios titles join over 65,000 movies, documentaries and training videos also available in Academic Video Online. In addition, ProQuest will curate a selection of BBC-branded video collections to be published throughout the term of the agreement. These collections will be curated in partnership with content and archival experts from BBC Studios and will showcase previously unavailable content from BBC’s 80-plus-year history of broadcasting, along with current releases. Collections will be curated in areas of academic interest, including science, technology, theater, drama, literature and more.
