What are Streaming Videos?

Streaming video is widely used to watch video clips and movies from the Internet on TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones. Unlike movies that are downloaded, which can be played at any time, a streamed movie is played immediately and not stored in the receiving device.

Here at the Raynor Memorial Libraries, we provide access to streaming videos, which can be used for class, research, or even entertainment. We provide access to streaming video collections through database, and also link to videos in our catalog, MARQCAT.

Streaming Video Databases

The Libraries have acquired databases full of streaming videos ready to use for class. Check out the links below to explore some of these collections, or choose a video to show your class.

Remote Access to Streaming Videos

Like our databases and ebooks, streaming videos can be accessed both on and off-campus.

To access a streaming video off campus, you will be prompted to enter your Marqnet credentials (used for D2L, checkmarq). Once these credentials are entered, you will have access to the streaming video.

For many of our streaming videos (Kanopy) the VPN is required to view while off-campus.

For more information about off-campus access, use the link below.

Streaming Videos in our Catalog

Raynor Memorial Libraries provides access to hundreds of streaming videos through our catalog. These streaming videos are fully accessible, and ready to use for your course! In our catalog, you will find direct links to the streaming video, as well as licensing information.
