The USF Libraries provides access to digital images, audio, and streaming video via a variety of platforms and library database subscriptions. Use this guide to learn how to locate media in the USF Libraries' collections and to find whether a certain title is available either on a time limited or perpetual basis.
An End to Streaming Media Leasing
The USF Libraries has discontinued leasing new titles, particularly on the Kanopy and Swank platforms. Streaming media titles with expiration dates into 2023 will continue to be available until they expire, and content that the USF Libraries own with perpetual access will be available in perpetuity. For more information on the history of this service, please visit the Streaming Media F.A.Q.
Please submit all streaming video requests through the Course Reserves function in Canvas. The maximum number of videos per course will continue to be limited to five (5) units. If you are using a video that is currently expiring mid-spring semester, we recommend planning to use the video before the expiration date. If you would like additional help finding alternate material, please contact your Liaison Librarian.
