We don't currently support uploading videos directly to a guide - instead, the video needs to be uploaded and streamed at a site like YouTube or Vimeo, or on your local campus servers.

Embed a video from YouTube:

   1. Get the Embed Code:

  • Navigate to the video you'd like to embed.
  • Click the Embed button below the video.
  • Copy the embed code in its entirety.
YouTube embed code.

   2. Add it to a LibGuide:

  • Go to the page in your guide where you'd like to embed a video.
  • Create a new Embedded Video box.
  • Click Embed a Video Clip.
  • In the popup box that appears, paste the embed code you got from YouTube in the Embed URL box.
  • Click Embed It and you're done!

Embed a video that was uploaded to your campus/institution servers:

  • To embed content provided on your local institution servers, it's best to talk with your local IT support team to determine the correct embed code.
  • Once you have the embed code, follow step 2 above to add it to your guide.

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
