Streaming Video Databases

Streaming video is licensed through several Kennedy Library databases, listed below.  Licensed films can be viewed in class or out of class. If a faculty member identifies a video ideal for required course viewing, please submit a Course Reserves form for the film.  This allows the library to: a) provide the most stable link for students to easily access; b) ensure that the license of the film extends through the quarter it is needed.  The form for listing items on reserves is found on the Course Reserves Information for Faculty page.
