The Libraries receives many requests for streaming video throughout the semester, and the requests are processed in the order they are received. There are a few steps that can be taken before requesting the movies that can make the process more efficient and help ensure that the resources for the course will be available when needed:
Add the DVD/Blu-Ray/VHS to the list and add the "Electronic Item Purchase Request" tag (click on "Add tags to item" and scroll down to see that option)
Most streaming movies to which the Libraries already have access can be found by searching the catalog. They can be added to a list using the "Library Search" option in Course Materials+ or by searching them in InfoHawk+ and adding them from there.
Other databases, like Swank, do not have their resources listed on the catalog. In those cases, you might receive an email from the Libraries with a link to the streaming movie when access is granted. The link can be added to the list using a "Blank Form" or using the "Cite It!" bookmarklet. If the movie is already on the list in DVD/Blu-Ray, the url can be added to that same citation:
