Embedded Videos on Digital Horizons

Digital Horizons has taken streaming historic videos to the next level. Normally, to watch a video on Digital Horizons, you would have to click on a link that would take you elsewhere, or you would have to download the video. Not anymore! A new feature now allows for embedded videos on Digital Horizons. Now you can search and stream in one convenient location.

This feature on Digital Horizons began with the “Prairie Memories – The Vietnam War Years” collection, and will soon be expanding to other collections. The State Library has been working on adding this feature to its “North Dakota State Documents” collection. Here is an example: http://bit.ly/2CPCAch

Digital Horizons was established in 2007 and has grown to include contributors such as Concordia College, North Dakota State University, Prairie Public Broadcasting, North Dakota State Library, State Historical Society of North Dakota, and more!
