Please note: All streaming videos in ASU Library's media collection are purchased or licensed content, limited to current authorized ASU students, faculty, and staff. (see the Accessing Licensed Electronic Resources page). While film distributors use a variety of hosting systems and platforms, please realize that some distributors do not provide their own hosting options. If the distributor provides a streaming license option, the ASU Library purchases and hosts the title internally on a case-by-case basis.
All videos in collections licensed by ASU Library can be used in ASU course management shells (Blackboard, Canvas, Learning Studio, etc.), syllabi, documents, and other webpages. Information on linking is available.
ASU faculty interested in using our Course Reserve system to provide their students with access to streaming video should consult our Streaming Video Reserve Guidelines page. For detailed information about how to use videos in teaching, view our tutorial.
If you are unable to access a video, request help from Library systems support. Please indicate the specific video you are unable to access, and include information on your operating platform/device (Mac, PC, tablet, etc.) and browser.
