Using Film in Courses: Linking to Films & Technical Questions
Linking to video content
To ensure the most stable URL, please link to the library’s catalog record, where students can be directed to the film. Often, syllabi and instructors use the direct link to the film platform, but in some cases, those links change, licenses expire, or platforms alter. We understand that this is an extra step for the user, as they will then have to click on the link "Available online at," but it should be a more reliable way to get viewers to video content.
Select the "Link/URL" in the brief catalog record to find the persistent link to the catalog.
This is the permalink to add to your syllabus or to your Canvas course shell.
For more help, please see the Persistent Links to Library Content page on the Library website.
Technical or Accessibility Questions
Captioning or other requests
If you have technical or accessibility issues with a film, please contact your library liaison to request help. We can help arrange captioning, transcripts, or communicate with film distributors for translation services in some cases.
