Faculty Film Requests

If you are faculty member, and would like to request a film, please go here.

We can provide films from either (1) a collection of DVDs that are reserved for your classes, or (2) academic streaming services, or (3) directly ordered from the publisher/copyright holder. 

DVD Collection/Reserve Service

There are over 60 computers (and viewing/listening stations) in Barret Library for students to view DVDs.

Academic Streaming Services
Barret Library provides access to thousands of streaming videos through our subscriptions to Kanopy, Swank - Digital Campus, and Academic Video Online (AVON).

We occasionally purchase digital rights to films from other streaming services that we do not subscribe to or we might purchase the digital rights of a streamed film directly from the publisher or copyright holder.

Links to streamed films (subscribed to or purchased) can be placed in your Moodle course or sent to students via email.
We cannot provide films for use in classes from personal streaming services (e.g. Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc.) or through Interlibrary Loan.

  • Personal streaming services do not offer institutional access for classroom use.
  • It is against copyright and broadcast laws to show films borrowed through Interlibrary Loan in class or to place them on reserve.
