Welcome to Avalon!

Avalon is an online service that provides round-the-clock access to streaming audio and video content. This content includes course reserve materials, library-owned items, and locally created content from campus departments. Most video content formerly hosted by BGSU's Digital Video Streaming Service (DVSS) may be found here, as well as streaming audio content previously housed in Variations.

Publicly available content can be accessed via the search bar and browsing options to the left. BGSU users should sign in to access content that is restricted to the campus community.
