An Introduction to Memorial Library's streaming video databases and recorded video collection

Finding Videos at Memorial Library

Streaming Video and DVDs in the Online Catalog

  • The most comprehensive list of video available at Memorial Library is the online catalog. 
  • Limit search results to videos held by Memorial Library (limiting to eVideos does not always find streaming content.).

Streaming Video Services

Memorial Library offers three comprehensive steaming video platforms, Films on Demand (including the Veterinary Science & Technology collection), Kanopy, and Swank Digital Campus.

  • Films on Demand is a subscription-based platform. We pay an annual fee to have unlimited educational-use access to all content. Non-commercial public performances are permitted.
  • Kanopy primarily uses a demand-driven purchase model. We set up a deposit account with Kanopy and purchases of one-year unlimited educational-use licenses are automatically triggered the third time a film is viewed for more than 10 minutes (the first two views are free, even if the entire film is viewed). Kanopy's full catalog is available for start-to-finish viewing 24-7; triggering of license fees is transparent to users. Some films include public performance rights for non-educational use.
  • Swank Digital Campus uses a request-based model. Everyone can view the full catalog; instructors can set up an account that enables them to request that the library purchase a one-year educational-use license for a film. Requests can be placed at any time, but require moderation by both library staff and staff at Swank. Once a license is purchased, most films are available for all Berry students, faculty and staff to view - for a few films, however, viewing is limited to students enrolled in a particular class. Swank Digital Campus films cannot be used for non-educational purposes.

On-campus visitors are permitted to watch films from all three services. Kanopy and Swank Digital Campus licenses are comparably priced.

Other video collections include the Library of Congress's National Screening RoomDisability in the Modern World: History of a Social Movement, and the C-SPAN Video Library
