Streaming Video at the University of Nevada Reno

The University of Nevada, Reno provides access to well over 50,000 streaming video titles for our faculty and students.  These titles include documentaries, feature films, ethnographies, primary source material, and much more. Many of these titles are listed in the library's OneSearch discovery tool or in the online catalog. As most of our streaming video partners are adding content on a regular basis, however, it is a good idea to check the different sites listed in this guide if you do not find a title you want in the catalog.

The sections of this guide will describe and link to the streaming content vendors we have licensed. There is also information on how to include this content in WebCampus or another course site.

Additionally, if you need streaming access to an individual title we have not already licensed, we can usually work that out. Whenever you need assistance with video content of any kind, feel free to contact us (by chat, phone, or email) and we will be glad to help.
