Films available from our Libraries

Due to an unexpected acceleration in expenditures, we are scaling back the streaming video that we offer through Kanopy. UCF pays for most Kanopy films on an on-demand per-title basis. Since launching in 2015, Kanopy has attracted a lot of usage; and as a result our costs have quadrupled and expended our allocation for this year.

Films that were already licensed on Kanopy will remain available for the duration of their lease. Meanwhile, the UCF Libraries have thousands of DVDs available for checkout from the LibTech Desk on the 3rd floor, and tens of thousands of streaming videos available online from Alexander Street Press, and FMG. We will continue providing access to films from Alexander Street Press, FMG, and our limited Kanopy catalog.

All the videos can be discovered via the UCF Libraries Catalog.  Use the “Video” tab on our Homepage as a shortcut to find them.

How do I get a film for a course I’m teaching in Spring 2019?

Contact the  subject librarian in your area as soon as possible.

Winter Break Maintenance

LibTech Winter Break Maintenance

LibTech Lending Items will be limited to 4 hour and 24 hour items during the Winter Break starting December 17th, 2018.

No Laptops, iPads, Cameras, Projectors, or any other multi-day items are available for checkout as the staff will be doing inventory and maintenance on the items to prepare them for use in the upcoming Spring 2019 semester.

Thank you for understanding and Happy Holidays!
