Faculty Video Streaming
For the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, we will continue to offer assistance for streaming services and digitization for the purposes of digital learning. Due to high demand, this service should expect lead times of up to 5 business days per disc required before being available as a streaming link. We will be able to update links from past digitization requests at this time.
Should you require a new disc to be digitized that is not part of the library collection, we ask that you please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a specific time or receive special instructions to drop off your media in addition to filling out your digital request form below.
Using the Faculty Video Streaming Service
The UNO Criss Library offers the streaming of VHS tapes and DVDs for UNO classes.* The service works as a more accessible alternative to the library reserve or in-class viewing.
Check some of our video streaming resources first, to see if your video is already available.
- If you don't find the video you want, use our request form to have a department or library copy digitized and streamed for you.
- If we have previously digitized a specific media request for your class, please allow one (1) full business day for us to confirm, prepare, and send out a new link to the existing media for use.
- If your digitization and streaming request is of a new video we have not yet processed, or is on a Blu-ray disc, please allow three (3) business days PER DISC for processing prior to the streaming link being available for access.
- It should be clearly stated in your request how the video is pedagogically necessary to the class. Faculty will only need to submit the form and materials once during the academic year. However, instructors are responsible for submitting an updated syllabus if significant changes are made. Links will be taken down at the end of each semester and new links will be created based on the semesters specified in the form.
You then will be given a link to your video that you can post on Canvas for your students. Students will need their NUID and password to access the video.
*Copyright restrictions may apply
^As copyright controls and media restrictions grow increasingly strict or technologically problematic, turnaround times for streaming accessibility may grow. Please account for this possibility when choosing to make a new streaming and digitization request for your class. Consider open-access or currently streaming alternatives to the digitization of videos as modern operating systems clamp down software access for media conversion.
