Streaming Video collections at Trexler Library

Trexler Library has many options for providing video online, streaming, and via Digital Site License.

Swank Digital Campus

Note that most streaming 'Feature Films' do NOT have public performance rights (PPR) included. 

This includes most films from Swank and Criterion Pictures. 

This doesn't mean you can't use a film from these vendors, but it does mean that if you wish to publicly screen a film from these vendors outside the classroom, you will need to procure PPR prior to viewing.  

For more information see "What are PPR"

To purchase rights

If you would like to use a video for a public performance as defined in this guide, the specific terms of the licenses for individual films that have PPRs can be provided by library staff.
