If you would like to show a film in your class, whether it's one we already own or need to buy, we can investigate streaming options. This is a service for UA faculty and instructors.
Once your request is processed we will add the streaming video directly to your D2L course page through the Panopto system (UA Tools > Panopto). Students can then access the videos from any device, on and off campus.
Yes! Videos in the Panopto system never expire. You can copy the videos from one D2L course site to another:
For films used before Spring 2015, please submit a new request.
We can digitize and stream many items from the library's collection, including VHS and DVDs. We are happy to purchase titles we do not own if they are available. Some VHS copies may be difficult to digitize, but we'll purchase a DVD version if available.
Personal copies can be digitized and streamed in some cases depending on whether you own the copyright or have permission from the copyright holder (including works created by your students). You may want to contact our copyright librarian.
