Videos are another great resource that you can use for your studies, not only can you reference them in your assignments, but you can watch them to help you get a better understanding of a topic that you are struggling with. You may just want to watch a video for leisure while learning interesting information on your subject area at the same time!
Don't forget, that just because it is in documentary or lecture format, doesn't necessarily mean that the information is 100% correct. You need to critically assess the information in the same manner you would a website. The CRAAP test can help you to evaluate the content of a video.
There are a number of places you can go to find videos on various topics. You can search for videos using your Keywords.

Magazines (also known as journals or serials) are a great resource for you to use both in your studies now and to keep you up-to-date in the workforce later.
We hold a selection of physical journals here in the library for you as well as a range of online resources (see databases). The latest editions of magazines are displayed on the front shelf of the library and back copies are kept in boxes at the end of the collection.
You can take magazines out for a week.

While we have a large collection of physical journals held in the library, one of the best ways for you to find academc resources for your research is via the online journals we subscribe to. These can be searched as via OneSearch or via separate databases (see the Finding Resources Online tab).
There are also a range of (sometimes commercial and/or international) websites that also provide how-to guides and videos about fixing cars, bikes, trucks etc.
