The library does not own the copyrights to the films in our collections, therefore, we cannot put them online without obtaining permission from the copyright holders. The library at this time does not purchase streaming licenses for popular films, but we do have a large selection of educational streaming media found in our databases "Films on Demand" and "Academic Video Online," which you can link to in your Bridges classes.
If you need to show a popular film for your distance students, we advise making sure you select a title that can be found online in a streaming database such as Netflix or Amazon. These sources are proprietary and students will need to pay a fee, but it will be minimal, especially on Amazon.
