Additional streaming video resources from the library

Requests for large portions of copyrighted bodies of work, such as full-length movies or documentaries, need to go through our libraries team in order to ensure they meet usage and licensing guidelines. Please use this link to our streaming media request form to notify the appropriate libraries teams of the need. You will be asked to indicate your Subject Librarian for your department or program, who can help with searches and questions about the process.

Important: Please fill out the streaming request promptly. The libraries team needs time to search for streaming options, contact the studio/copyright holder and await a reply in some instances, coordinate licensing details, etc. It can also take a week for captioning after this process is complete, if captions are needed, so please provide as much lead time as possible.

For more information, please visit the library’s policies on Streaming Video for Course Use or contact your liaison librarian.
