Email: Streaming Media

Message was sent to Department Chairs.

As the Spring 2021 textbook adoption cycle continues, I have an important message for courses using streaming video content provided by the USF Libraries.

Please submit all streaming video requests through the Course Reserves function in Canvas. Instructions are available at  If you encounter any issues in submitting through Canvas, please email The maximum number of videos per course will continue to be limited to five (5) units.

Visit our USF Libraries Media Guide:

  • To search by title to determine if the USF Libraries has perpetual ownership or expiring access to currently available streaming movies
  • To search for movies and documentaries in the USF Libraries’ extensive DVD movie collection
  • To identify open access media alternatives

If you are using a video that is currently expiring mid-spring semester, we recommend planning to use the video before the expiration date. If you would like additional help finding alternate material, please contact your Liaison Librarian.
