New Streaming Video, Music Services Available this Fall

The library is now offering more streaming video and music than ever, part of its ongoing effort to ensure that UC Davis students, faculty and staff can easily access research and course materials at any time, and from any place they may be working or studying this fall.

Stream documentaries, feature films, theatre and music videos

In addition to the thousands of documentary films available on demand through Kanopy, library users can now stream extensive documentary content via Docuseek2, feature films from Swank Motion Pictures, music videos, and an additional 250 hours of performances through Theatre in Video. For videos not available online, the library can now also convert DVDs in its collection to streaming format for instructional use in Canvas.

New streaming music

The library continues to grow its digital music collection. Beyond the more than 2 million tracks already available through the Naxos Music Library (primarily classical and jazz), the library now offers access to Music Online collections including:

American music

Classical music

Contemporary World music

Popular music

Jazz

Smithsonian Global Sound for Libraries 

More streaming music resources are on the way, such as Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart and Naxos Music Library: World.

“Right now, streaming media is absolutely essential for research and instruction,” said Adam Siegel, researcher services librarian at the UC Davis Library. “These new additions to our streaming services reflect the library’s commitment to supporting the needs of our students and researchers.”
