About Streaming Media at the Marx Library

The preferred format for media at the Marx Library is streaming for the following reasons:

  1. Wider accessibility to patrons; there is no need to come to the library to check out a physical format.
  2. Access is not limited to one user at a time.
  3. Public performance rights are included in the cost of the video.

Because a format is preferred, however, does not mean the library will not purchase video in a physical format if needed, so if you can't find a title in our streaming collections, make sure to check SOUTHcat to find out if we have the DVD.

If we don't have the title you are looking for, you can fill out a Materials Purchase Request form. The library will purchase the video based on funding availability and on the following criteria:

  • The title supports a specific USA  course or courses, or
  • the requested video will be used for academic or research purposes; or
  • the title will be used by recognized USA organizations for USA-sponsored events.
