The Penn State University Libraries have contracted with Swank Motion Pictures, a major film distributor, to provide online access to movies for teaching purposes. Penn State faculty members can request movies in the Swank Motion Pictures catalog to be streamed over the Internet for a specific course. More information can be found on this webpage.

To initiate online access for a specific file, the course instructor submits the request directly to the distributor, Swank Motion Pictures, via the request form (also linked from the webpage above).

A few days after submitting your request via the request form, you will receive an email message from Swank Motion Pictures with access information for you and your students in the form of a web link. To embed the video link in your ANGEL course site, follow the instructions in our Instructor’s Guide for Linking in ANGEL.

You can find out which movies are available from Swank Motion Pictures by consulting their catalog.
