Other Licensed Video Streaming Sources

​Kanopy and Swank

Albertsons Library licenses films from vendors like Kanopy and Swank which provide access to streaming films for distinct periods of time. To license via Kanopy, we utilize a mediated method for access, where instructors who are interested in unlicensed titles will be prompted to request access via email or directly through the Kanopy platform. The form on Kanopy’s site is routed to Library staff and we work with the instructor directly to get more information about their request and to talk about licensing options.

VHS/DVDs at Albertsons Library

The Media Collection includes DVDs, VHS cassettes and other recorded media. It is located on the 3rd floor of the library on the shorter shelving near the stairs and elevators. The Recorded Music Room, room 302, includes listening and viewing equipment. Items from this collection may also be checked out.
