The library has several streaming film databases:
To link to a film in one of these databases, look for the "permalink" in the film's database (and/or the "Share" option).
We are not able to provide access to commercial film streaming sites like Netflix or Hulu (and so on) as these sites do not sell licenses to libraries or institutions. The site JustWatch.com provides information on commercial streaming options for films and television shows, which can help you identify low-cost options where possible.
If you have a public library card/account*, you may be able to stream films through that library account. Contact that library directly to see what your access options are.
If we have a film or television series season available for viewing -- either as a DVD or via streaming -- it will be listed in the library's catalog.
To search for films in the library’s catalog:
DVDs have been moved to storage. If the film or TV series season that you want is only available as a DVD, the catalog record will include a link that lets you request the DVD from storage. For example, we have Medium Cool on DVD:
A little further down in the catalog record you'll see the link to the Storage Request Form:
Retrieval of a DVD can take up to 2 hours -- you will be notified by email when the DVD is ready for checkout.
Resources for searchable text transcripts of TV news coverage. Some include video, some don't.
