Locating and using streaming and physical media (films, music, etc.).

Physical Media

The Library collects physical media for curricular use. Search our catalog for DVDs and CDs.

Please complete the appropriate form if you wish to recommend a collection addition or place an item on Course Reserve.

Streaming Media

In addition to the many online eresources we have offered for several years, the Library is piloting three new streaming media resources for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Streaming Video

We are working with two of the biggest streaming video vendors which together offer close to 60,000 films from the latest blockbusters to highly specialized documentaries.

We are extremely excited about this program, as faculty members can embed video links, clips, and playlists directly into Blackboard, making course assignments convenient and accessible for all. 

Swank (  

We have purchased a package of 25 one-year licenses from Swank. We will be licensing films for curricular use on a first-come first-serve basis.

Currently available for Spring 2019:

  1. Bowling for Columbine
  2. Chicken Run
  3. Citizen Kane
  4. City of God
  5. The Dark Knight
  6. Get Out
  7. Groundhog Day
  8. Ocean's 11 (2001)
  9. On the Waterfront
  10. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
  11. The Shining
  12. Singin’ in the Rain
  13. Some Like it Hot
  14. A Streetcar Named Desire

In order to ensure your film is available at the start of the Fall 2019 semester, please navigate to the site and register as an instructor. From there, search and request any film(s) of interest by Thursday, June 27. In your request, be sure to detail the intended use of the film, including the course name and anticipated enrollment. 

Kanopy (

Kanopy works slightly differently--the entire 30,000-title collection is available for immediate viewing. Once a title has been viewed 4 times, the Library automatically licenses it for one year.

We have allocated funds to license a limited number of titles this year, so feel free to search for and assign titles. In order to ensure students have access to a film, please let us know what film(s) you are assigning for Fall 2019 by Thursday, June 27.

Streaming Music

Naxos (

The Library is pleased to offer Naxos Music Library, a new addition to our collection as of Fall 2018.

The world's largest online classical music library offers streaming access to more than 135,000 CDs with more than two million tracks of both standard and rare repertoire. To create and access your personal playlist, navigate to this URL:
