Video Streaming Options at Emory

Looking for ways to stream videos this fall?

Current Emory students, faculty, and staff have access to a wide variety of streaming video resources, from documentaries to music to popular studio films. While not a comprehensive list, these are some of Emory’s most popular streaming services:

Academic Video Online (AVON): Best for documentaries in history, art, and other humanities.

Kanopy: Mixture of Hollywood blockbusters, global cinema, and popular documentaries. Some highlights include a number of films in the Criterion Collection and selections from The Great Courses.

Swank: While primarily used for Course Reserves, Swank has a selection of Hollywood films, and even some recent releases!

Film Platform: Modern documentaries with a social justice and politics emphasis.

Some quick tips and tricks:
  • If you’re having trouble streaming, try opening the page in an incognito or private browser window.

  • Not all films on these sites show up in discoverE, so take a look on each site individually to confirm their available titles.

  • Selections change frequently, so be sure to check back for new titles!

  • Contact reference librarians for more help searching and discovering streaming resources at Emory.
