Bill Nye the Science Guy—Direct to Your Desktop Computer

By Kelly Bryant, Library Materials Specialist, SOESD

Want to have access to educational content without having to check it out?

The SOESD Media Materials Library has some great content in digital format. This means when users want to use a resource, all they have to do is click the icon and play and/or download it to their computer desktop. We have been purchasing digital rights to content that is highly used that we have in hard copy (DVD or VHS format). Teachers now have access to that same content by logging in to our online catalog.

Searching for digital content can be done in a variety of ways. You can do a search for a topic and then see what content we have in all formats. You can restrict the search to just ‘digital content’ format.  You can also search under ‘mediagraphies’. Click on ‘digital content also in hard copy’. We currently have over 600 titles with digital rights that we have purchased. They cover all content and grade level areas.

Searching for digital content

Bill Nye the Science Guy series has the most requests of all media in our system. We have the top 30 requested titles in digital format (in addition to VHS and DVD). In addition to purchasing our own digital content, we have a subscription to a digital content database. That database provides us with several thousand more titles in digital format.

We have worked hard to get our digital content integrated with our online catalog and booking system. This allows our users to do the ‘one-stop’ shopping approach when looking for resources for their classroom instruction.
