Streaming Video

The library has access to streaming video platforms which can be accessed on campus or by logging in with your UI account:

  • Swank Digital Campus - the library has procured unlimited access to the top 250 films in Swank Film Library (most popular titles based on bookings at universities and colleges around the United States).
  • Kanopy - the library purchases one year licenses to films on demand from the Kanopy catalog. Using our mediated purchasing model, patrons will need to submit a request to the library in order to access new Kanopy videos. Requests can be submitted via the Kanopy website. When planning to use a Kanopy video during the semester, please check the expiration dates for Kanopy page to ensure uninterrupted access.
  • Berliner Philharmoniker Digital Concert Hall - the library has five concurrent users available to stream live and pre-recorded classical music concerts to any device. Users must register while connected to ON CAMPUS internet to create an account. Once activated, the account may be used off-campus.
  • Safari: O'Reilly's Learning Platform - In addition to ebooks, Safari has a wide selection of videos and online courses for learning about tech topics. First-time users must enter a UI email address to set up an account with Safari, after which they can log into the platform directly.

If you have any questions or encounter issues, please contact a librarian. For requests to view a streaming video from another provider or licensing questions,please email Jodi Haire at haire@uidaho.edu.
