Streaming films

You asked: Can we have online films through the Library as well as the DVDs?

Irma says: We're really glad you're enjoying the film collection. Because of licensing restrictions we are unable to legally provide streaming feature films for general viewing. We do have a great deal of streaming content available at http://library.uncg.edu/info/distance_education/digitalvideo.aspx

however most of these are instruction films that your professors assign in class. We are able to link to streaming feature films for classroom use through Swank Digital Campus; faculty select them and they may only be viewed by specific classes through Blackboard.

So, at the present time the only way we may provide general access to entertainment films is by DVD checkout. Should a streaming option become available for libraries we will certainly look into it!
