Could your curriculum benefit from streaming video?

Whether you’re new to video resources or a regular user, the Auraria Library has an important update.

Auraria Library exteriorDid you know the Auraria Library provides access to more than 100,000 streaming videos for teaching, research and learning? The Auraria Library maintains a video collection and subscribes to several robust streaming-video subscription services, including Films on Demand, Academic Videos Online, DocuSeek2, Counseling and Therapy in Video, and Kanopy. Faculty interested in integrating these videos into coursework can search all available videos by visiting Start My Research on the Library home page and limiting the search to “Media Only.”

Faculty already using the Kanopy streaming-video platform in particular should be aware of the updated per-title leasing model for new Kanopy titles. Under this model, faculty who want to use a video in the Kanopy collection that is not already owned or leased by the Auraria Library must now complete a short request form. A collection-development librarian will review the request, and approved videos will typically be available in two business days. 

This simple change will allow the Library to keep within its budget and to lease needed content for a longer period, up to three years.

Faculty and staff can also contact their collection-development librarian directly with any video requests or questions.
