The University Library provides a service to stream completefilms in support of instruction. Streaming video is a method to deliver video content to computers desktops, without downloading that content. With permission, or if we have a license that allows it, Askwith Media Library staff can stream feature films anddocumentaries via an instructor's class site in CTools. This delivery mechanism allows instructors to efficiently "reserve" films for course-related use, and allows students to view required films outside of class time.
To find out more about our list of licensed films and our growing collection of online video products, please see our Library Digital Films Service guide.
A special note to instructors: We are taking your streaming film requests now for Fall term 2013. Please complete our Faculty Streaming Request form.
Many libraries will reduce building hours or will be closed for the upcoming university holiday break and semester intersession (12/20/2013 through 1/7/2014). Please check the library hours for the end of December and the beginning of the new year to help you plan your library visit.
In the meantime, please feel free to use the Mirlyn Get This to make requests for circulating items. Requests will be fulfilled as soon as possible when libraries re-open.
Staff at the University of Michigan made architectural and procedural decisions related to the creation, storage, and revision of “aboutware” (information about editorial boards, submission policies, etc.) for journals deposited via mPach.
