As UC Santa Cruz responds to the unfolding COVID-19 crisis by continuing to support remote instruction for Winter & Spring 2021, the University Library is working to support streaming film requests from faculty and instructors whenever possible.
To view and browse the streaming videos that are already available in our collection, please visit our Streaming Videos Collection page.
Important Note: Please limit streaming video requests to films that are required for a Winter or Spring 2021 UCSC class. In your request, include the course code and title, and date when access would first be needed for required viewing. This will help ensure that the library is able to meet your class needs.
University libraries and other educational organizations are able to purchase streaming media licenses from vendors only if they are set up as institutional resources that can be used by many people in the organization.
There are a number of streaming media sites and vendors that are set up for individual viewing and we are unable to purchase from them, including but not limited to: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Vimeo, HBO Now, Disney+.
Listed below are some streaming film databases. Individual titles for films in these databases are discoverable through Library Search.
