In order to stream entire films in your online course, you may need to request a streaming license. For more information on when licenses are needed, please visit our Teaching and Copyright guide.
If you need a streaming license for a physical DVD, the film is not available through Kanopy or Swank, or you are unsure of where to find a streaming version of a film, please use the form below. Please note that you will need to be logged into a VCU gmail account in order to access the form. Films that are not available from any of our academic streaming platforms can take up to two months to acquire. While VCU Libraries will do our best to accommodate streaming requests, some films may not be available for remote streaming or available copies do not meet university accessibility guidelines (e.g. include closed captioning). Please reach out to your subject specialist or collections librarian with questions.
