Streaming Video & Remote Instruction

Connecting Your Students with Streaming Video as Part of Remote Instruction

The Libraries already have quite a bit of licensed streaming video content, including Kanopy and Swank, that you are welcome to use as part of remote instruction. We may be able to purchase streaming access for additional media. Contact your Subject Specialist if you see a title in one of our streaming databases that we don't currently have access to, and they will let you know if the library can acquire a copy.

You can always connect students with video made legally and freely available online.

Standard commercial streaming options like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and Disney+ may sometimes be the easiest or, in the case of Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon exclusives, it may be the only available option. Students may have their own accounts, or have to subscribe to them.

If you are seeking additional information about making a film available to your students as part of remote instruction, please complete this form and a librarian will follow-up with you. You should receive an initial response to your inquiry within 1-2 business days, though more time may be needed depending on the nature of the request and the acquisition options available to the library. Requests are processed in the order they are received.
