Videos can be useful to incorporate as research sources in your paper because:

1. If you are a visual learner, watching videos may help you to better retain the information. 

2. Documentaries can provide a history of your topic as well as related stories that can strengthen your argument. 

3. News videos can provide factual accounts of events that took place.  News commentary can provide analysis and opinion-based reporting on your topic. 

Videos can be cited just like any other source and the Berkeley College video databases provide tools to help with those citations.
