Streaming Video at the CSUSB Libraries: Faculty Video Requests

Current CSUSB students, staff, and faculty have access through the library to thousands of streaming videos.

NEED A VIDEO FOR YOUR CLASS?

Check OneSearch first!

You and your students have immediate access to the streaming videos found in OneSearch.  No need to make a request ahead of time, worry about expiration dates, or be concerned about requiring your students to spend money on subscriptions.  Follow the instructions under the OneSearch tab in this guide.

Didn't find anything?

If the library doesn't have a license to a video that you need for a class, you can request it.  Due to the high costs involved, only faculty members can request video licenses.  Fulfillment is dependent upon funding.

Requested videos must be intended as required viewing for an entire class.  Extra credit; supplemental resources; showing only portions in class; or wanting to view the video before deciding to assign it; do not count.  These restrictions only apply to requested videos.

TO REQUEST VIDEOS WE DON'T HAVE

To request other streaming videos, please use the Faculty Video Request Form on the library's website.

Turnaround time depends upon many factors and may vary widely.  Plan ahead!

Good to Know

  • Sometimes videos simply are no longer available in any format, even from the people who created them.
  • Videos must have closed captioning.  English subtitles do not satisfy the campus ADA requirements.
  • Streaming services such as Amazon do not sell video licenses to the academic market.  Period.
  • Streaming services such as Netflix do not offer institutional subscriptions.
