WiLS vendor-partner, Docuseek2 will be hosting a series of information webinars which will be all about content! We hope that you will be able to join this presentation, covering the renowned documentary distributors and producers whose content they feature including Bullfrog Films, Icarus Films, and as of recently, The National Film Board of Canada. They’ll highlight some bestsellers, new releases, and classics available from these vendors and others.
You’ll also get to know the variety of subject areas they have particular depth in, from Anthropology to Sustainability, from Architecture to Healthcare, and everything in between. This presentation will be especially useful to subject specialists and library liaisons for creating subject guides, and for communicating with faculty that the films they use in their courses year after year are now available for streaming online. Faculty members themselves should feel encouraged to attend! They’ll also be giving you an exclusive sneak peek at over 20 new titles that are coming soon to Docuseek2. Be the first to find out what they are!
