Key Resources for Faculty

Streaming Video

Finding Video for Online Classes

Faculty: Please use the following decision-tree to find streaming video for online classroom environments 

Last updated June 6, 2022

If you have any questions, please contact your library liaison.

1. Search Kanopy, AVON, and Films on Demand 

The Library provides faculty with streaming video options for your online courses. Check out the plethora of options already available to you and your students in our Films on Demand, AVON, and Kanopy databases. See the Library’s streaming video guide to learn how you can link to these films in your online courses. 

AVON (Academic Video Online): search the AVON database through GALILEO.

Films on Demand: Search the Films on Demand database through GALILEO.

Kanopy: Search the Kanopy database through GALILEO.

Work with your library liaison to embed videos into D2L or to add them to your course reserves.  

2. Search Other Sources 

If your title isn’t available in AVON, Films on Demand, or Kanopy, try searching Google to see whether there is a free or low-cost option available.  Try searching for the name of the film, perhaps the director's name, and include the word "streaming."  Example:  "wise blood" streaming

If you don't see any streaming options, contact your library liaison to determine whether the Library can acquire streaming access. If so, your liaison will provide you with access instructions. Note that this option is budget-dependent. We might be able to purchase streaming access for additional media, but it does take time to finalize a streaming license, and institutional streaming costs do often exceed our budget constraints. 

3. Converting from DVDs 

In very specific cases, if there is no library-provided, free, or low-cost option available, excerpting small portions of DVDs via screen capture software may be allowed for use in certain educational settings. However, the Library is unable to offer this service at this time.  


Resource Wishlist

Departmental Wishlists are the titles and/or databases that each department requests to be included in the next year's library budget, and these wishlists help Library Liaisons as they work with their departmental liaisons to shape each year's budget.

  • Contact your Liaison Librarian and provide them with a detailed list of the desired resources for the next fiscal year.
  • To request materials in the current fiscal year, use the Material Request Form.

Unfortunately, not all requested items/databases will be able to be added to the library budget for the academic year due to budget limitations and increasing costs.
