Guide to DVDs, videotapes, and streaming video at Minnesota State

CoVid-19 Response

MavScholar does include links streaming video titles. Use the search box below and check the "streaming videos only" option.

Kanopy Streaming -- Please check title availability in advance. If not currently available, submit the title request form within Kanopy. Allow 2-3 business days for title to be made available.

Additional streaming video collections are available as listed.

Several educational video vendors have made offers of streaming access. Please contact Barb about titles needed.

DVDs can be digitized and loaded into MediaSpace using Fair Use as applied to online-only instruction. Digitization request can be made via the Library or via Academic Technology. Although using the Library copy of DVDs, personal DVDs can be brought to the Library for the digitization.

Wondering where streaming access is available via personal streaming services? JustWatch lists all major streaming services. Most of these subscription services offer a free trial period - several are now offering a free month.

 Note: Kanopy listings in JustWatch are for public libraries, so title may or may not be available through Library's academic collection.

Educational Resource Center, Memorial Library

students sitting in library in front of DVDs.Audiovisual collections are located in the Educational Resource Center (ERC) in the lower level of Memorial Library. The ERC houses a collection of approximately 10,000 DVDs and videotapes. We also provide access to over 30,000 titles as streaming video.

Film titles can be searched through MavScholar.

Limit format to Videos to see film titles available on DVD, videotape, and streaming; to only see Streaming Video, further limit on Online Full-Text.

Streaming video providers add new video titles frequently. Check Kanopy directly for most up-to-date information. Alexander Street databases are static and do not add new titles.

LinkedIn Learning tutorials are subscribed to by ITS and are therefore not found in Library catalog.

DVDs and videotape can be checked out with MavCard or valid public library card. For streaming video, as with other licensed resources, off-campus access is provided to students, faculty, and staff via authentication with their StarID login. Community users can view most streaming video while in the library.

Contact and Circulation Information

Circulation:  Faculty, students, staff, and community members may check out videos for one week (plus one renewal), unless video is on in-Library reserve or booked for an in-class screening. Booking or reserves are highly encouraged to ensure availability.
