Fall 2022: We've got a new subscription to Swank, a video streaming service.
See below for details.
NEW: Access to Streaming Video
We've got streaming video access for your teaching! Click below.
Swank is a digital library of thousands of films available immediately for you to use in class, or to assign to students to watch outside of class. If a film offered in Swank is not part of our paid collection, you may click to request it, and one of our Swank administrators on campus will respond to your request. Please be sure to email your division librarian so they know to look for your movie request. Note: requests are intended to be for academic use, and use by school groups for educational purposes.
Links to Swank will be integrated into the Catlin Gabel LibGuides for ease of use.
Special thanks to Daisy in IT for making Swank available for legal, easy streaming video on our campus.
