    Streaming Films FAQ

    Can I stream Rod Library or personal DVDs in my eLearning page?

    Possibly. There are many factors influencing this, including but not limited to copyright law, producer/publisher restrictions, and various sources of funding depending upon course type (Distance Education, Continuing Education, or departments).

    Streaming rights for a single film can cost $300 or more, and the library's limited budget may not be able to support all requests. All requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and require ample advanced notice (the prior semester is optimal). 

    How can I find out more about streaming options?

    Contact your department's Collection Strategist Librarian if you have questions about streaming films.

    What alternatives are there?

    Physical DVDs (library and/or personal copies) may be placed on reserve at Rod Library. See additional information elsewhere on this page. See also Rod Library subscription databases for streaming films and suggested sources for finding freely available online films.

    Course Reserves

    Rod Library staff recommend that physical DVDs (library copies and/or personal copies) be placed on reserve if needed for course use. This ensures films are ready when needed for in-class showings and are available outside of class for individual student viewing.
