Streaming Video Resources: Currently Licensed Films

Information on finding and using streaming video

Streaming Film Access Models

  • Many of the library's streaming video resources are subscribed to on a yearly basis. This means that any film in the collection may be streamed immediately without incurring additional fees.

  • Other streaming film collections operate on an individual licensing model. Most licenses provide for 1-year or 3-year streaming access. Examples of film databases that follow this model include Swank Digital Campus and Film Platform.

    • Kanopy operates under a hybrid model. Currently, many films are available for immediate viewing while some titles will need to be requested.

We encourage you to request films needed to support research and teaching and to utilize immediately available films. To help facilitate browsing, we have included a list of currently licensed titles from Film Platform, Kanopy, and Swank below.
