Library subscriptions include unlimited access to Academic Video Online (AVON) and smaller collections (such as select titles on Psychotherapy.net & JoVE). If the this content does not meet curricular needs, faculty may request individual titles which the library may purchase or license from other sources. The library purchases videos at institutional/higher education prices, providing for campus access and/or ownership.
While documentary DVDs are often expensive, with special pricing for university/institutions, DVDs allow the library to own the content permanently and are usually preferred to very high-cost, limited-term campus-wide streaming licenses.
Faculty can submit a request to the library and the library will investigate the options for temporary access (typically annual licenses) or permanent ownership. Vendors who sell institutions online streaming access to individual titles include several major sites.
