Accessing Films at SHU

The Seton Hall University Libraries offer several ways to access film:


We have a collection of DVDs that can be found by searching our online catalog. Students and faculty can borrow DVDs by requesting the title they would like at the Circulation Desk. 

Streaming for the SHU community [Kanopy & Alexander Street Video]

Additionally, members of the SHU community can stream films by using Kanopy. Kanopy streams more than 26,000 films from the Criterion Collection, Great Courses, PBS, and hundreds of other producers. The films range from documentaries, indie and foreign films to classics and blockbuster movies. Kanopy is based on a patron-driven acquisition model. If we do not have access to a film, you can request it for the library. 

The SHU community can also stream films using Alexander Street Video. This service includes Counselling and Therapy Video, Music Online: Classical Music Library, and Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000.

Streaming for classes [Digital Campus]

The Library also offers access to over 17,000 commercial films in digital format through Digital Campus. These films may be viewed in the classroom and must be ordered by a faculty member. The link to the video, if shared with students to view on their own, must be accessed through Blackboard.

Streaming individual titles

Are films searchable through our catalog.
