Fintel Library provides access to several streaming media collections. This includes licensed resources as well as free resources. The licensed resources include American History in Video, Films on Demand, Platino Educa, and  These services allow multiple users simultaneous access to the same title. Watch lists and clips can be made and shared among Roanoke College faculty and students.  

For streaming films that are not available in the library's databases, faculty can submit a request to their subject liaison for the library try to acquire a streaming license. Staff will need time to determine if a film can be licensed for viewing online.  Allow at least one week after requesting before assigning to students. Faculty will be notified when/if a film is available for streaming. 

Individually licensed content is generally available for no more than one year.  The file below contains a list of online video content requested by faculty and currently licensed for viewing.  Statistics are provided on the number of times a title has been viewed to date.   The expiration date for each title is also included. If you plan to re-use or assign a video that you have previously requested, please check this list.  If the expiration date is in advance of the assignment, please ask your subject liaison to have the license renewed. If a title that you previously requested does not appear on this list and you intend to show it this semester, please let your subject liaison  know.
