Accessing Video at SHU

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

Streaming for the SHU community [Academic Video Online]

The SHU community can stream videos using  Academic Video Online. Academic Video Online is the most comprehensive video subscription available to libraries. It delivers more than 66,000 titles spanning the widest range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.

Streaming for classes [Digital Campus & Kanopy]

The Library offers access to over 25,000 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 the course shell..

Additionally, members of the Faculty can request films for the SHU community. 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. NOTE: Only films that support the curriculum will be added to the collection.
