Introducing AVON - CSU's New Film Database

CSU Libraries is happy to announce that its new film database, AVON (Academic Films Online), is now available.

AVON includes scholarly video material of virtually every video type: documentaries, interviews, performances, news programs and newsreels, field recordings, commercials, demonstrations, original and raw footage including tens of thousands of exclusive tiles.  There are thousands of award-winning films, Academy, Emmy, and Peabody winners along with the most frequently used films for classroom instruction, plus newly released films and previously unavailable archival material.

AVON is accessible online through the GALILEO portal.  Once in GALILEO, select databases A-Z, pick "A," then scroll to the bottom of the list for AVON.  Alternatively, you can access AVON directly online at:

The Kanopy film database is now mediated.  Only films that have been licensed during the last year are available. 

To search for available films online, please visit AVON, Films on Demand and  All of these resources are available in GALILEO.
