The library provides access to streaming video from two subscription databases.
We work with Swank and Kanopy to purchase access to films in their catalog.
If you want to show a film during class, the DVD option might be the best option. The library can put DVDs on reserve so they aren't checked out long periods of time.
If you want to assign students to watch a film as an assignment, streaming might be an option.
The cost to stream a film can be anywhere from $120 - $600.
Includes films from Films for the Humanities & Sciences, ABC News, NBC News, BBC, National Geographic, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Bill Moyers, Shopware, The Open University, A&E, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Fred Friendly Seminars, Cambridge Educational, and many more.
You can link a film in your Moodle class for students to access by using the "Share" link.
Choose the Embed/Link option and copy the url you want to use. Make sure the proxy server prefix is there.
There is an embed option but we've had trouble getting it to work properly.
Delivers over 70,000 titles spanning the widest range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.
The library has contracted with Swank to provide streaming access to feature films.
Please let the library know if you have a feature film you want students to view as part of a class assignment. Please note that not all feature films are available. Often original content from streaming services like Netflix is not available.
We can check to see if it is available and request access. Please give us 3 business days to request films before they are available for use.
