Request a Film for Reserve
Streaming films help to increase student engagement by facilitating their viewing of media content outside of class time. This assists faculty in better using class time. If you would like to have students watch films outside of class time we can order it for you via Swank. Because rights to streaming films are expensive, this is not the best option for faculty who wish to view clips of films during class time.
To request a film to be placed on reserve, please fill out the form linked below.
Check the Swank catalog to make sure the title you want is available.
Please allow 10 days for items to be purchased and to be placed on reserve. In rare situations some titles may take longer.
