AVON stands for Academic Video Online. It is a collection of over 67,000 videos. AVON offers a variety of streaming material such as documentaries, interviews, feature films, performances, news programs and newsreels, among them many award-winning films.

AVON is part of Alexander Street, ProQuest company.

AVON films can be accessed from the A-Z list of databases, from the Streaming Media LibGuide and are also retrievable through the ProQuest Central database. 

AVON collections are organized by Channels rather than disciplines or subjects. AVON allows one to filter and sort the results by date of publication, subject, publisher, person, content type, and language.

AVON films are closed captioned, contain transcripts and citation tools, and can be embedded into Canvas courses.
