About this guide

This Library Guide provides basic information on streaming video resources available at Rochester Institute of Technology through RIT Libraries.

RIT Libraries provides access to thousands of streaming videos through several  major providers. We acquire and provide access to streaming media titles in different ways.

  • We purchase and provide access to complete collections of video content.
  • With appropriate faculty input, we evaluate and acquire specific video titles, on a semester basis, from the select vendors below.

Please check for desired titles in the subscription sources below or contact your librarian for assistance.  Media requests for titles not currently included in our collections can be submitted via the Media Request form. More information can be found on our Media Requests page.

All streaming videos in RIT Libraries’ media collection are purchased or licensed content- limited to current authorized RIT students, faculty, and staff. Access to individual titles must be requested each semester.

All streamed videos licensed by RIT Libraries can be used in MyCourses syllabi, documents, and other webpages.
