We now subscribe to Literary Reference Center, which provides information on thousands of authors and their works across literary disciplines and timeframes.

NEWS - 12/10/14

Due to substantial faculty interest, the Library has purchased a subscription to Films on Demand database. Please read the Films on Demand Quick Start Guide, attached below. Page 3 of the Quick Start Guide has the access information that you will need.

You will be able to show films (and/or segments) in your on-campus classes as well as include links to films (and/or segments) in Canvas.

Due to licensing agreement changes, Films on Demand may sometimes need to delete specific films from their holdings. Recognizing the needs of academic institutions, they are committed to only deleting films twice a year - in December and June. This means that once you are set up with the films you want for your classes, you will want to check your access to them twice a year.
