Online Movies & Streaming Video

Guide to the Libraries' licensed collections of streaming video and other sources. The collections provide access to thousands of educational videos, documentaries and feature films on a variety of subjects.

Streaming Options for Courses

Instructors: Any of the many thousands of streaming video titles in our licensed collections can easily be integrated into courses and shared with students. Search the catalog or the collection itself for titles. Play the video in class, or share the link in a WebCampus course or a syllabus.

If the video you want is not available online (and even if we own it on DVD), we can check into getting a streaming license for it.* To request a new streaming title or to order a DVD for course use, please fill out the Media Request Form.

* Investigating and obtaining streaming licenses for individual titles may take at least several weeks; licenses are not always available for particular titles.
