Film - Finding and Using

Streaming Content and Library Online Course Reserves (LOCR)

IMPORTANT: Course instructors should enter streaming video titles into LOCR if they are recommending films to their students. Many streamed video databases are subscription-based and access to individual titles can be time-limited. If titles have been entered into LOCR then Library staff will be able to contact instructors before access is lost.

Please note that not all streaming content is indexed in Summon. If a title does not come up in the LOCR search use the manual form entry link that appears when items are not found to enter in the relevant information about the title including director, year, etc.  If UBC Library does not own/have access to the title, Library staff will automatically investigate the options available and communicate these to the course instructor.
