Finding Streaming Videos in OneSearch

OneSearch is easier to use than ever, but there are two steps required to filter your search results to just streaming videos:

  1. Limit to videos.
  2. Limit to online availability.

1. Limit to Videos

There is more than one way to limit to videos, depending on whether you are in Advanced or Simple search. You can apply the limit prior to entering a search, as shown here:

Limit to Videos in Advanced Search
Limit your search to Videos
Limit to Videos in Simple Search

Limit to videos from the simple search box

When you have already submitted a search, you may apply a limit to the result list by selecting Videos under Resource Type. You will see this option on the left of the page (under "Tweak your results")...

Limit search results by resource type

2. Limit to Online Availability

Look for the "Tweak your results" on the left of the page. Under Availability, select "Available online."

Tweak your results - select online availability

Search Tip!
Adding "video on demand" (in quotes) to a keyword search is another way to locate streaming videos.

Two Types of Log in Screens

All streaming titles require your RRC username and password to view. For videos, you will encounter two types of log in screens:

  1. RRC organizational, which is the common log in screen throughout the College.
  2. ShareStream, which gives access to the videos located on video.rrc.ca.

Please note that the log in information required in the username field varies, as shown below.
