Teaching Aids on DVD/Video

You can download and browse a PDF list of Teaching Aids available in the Best & Next Department. The collection includes series like Nova and National Geographic that number in the hundreds of videos and cover an amazing range of topics, as well as more focused series. If you or your students are interested in any of these video series or would like us to help locate audio-visual materials on a specific topic for the classroom, please call us directly at (410) 396-4616 or e-mail us at

Please book DVD/video reserve materials well in advance, especially those that may be in high seasonal demand, and allow adequate time for shipping. All due dates on these items are flexible, pending prior approval.
