The Eugene McDermott library values our active duty and veteran students, staff, and faculty. This guide offers useful sources and research tips to assist in finding research and services for military and veterans interest topics.
For research or leisure, the Library has a collection of streaming video, select titles in audiobook format, and films on DVD (Room 2.408).
Browse the collections on McDermott Library's Streaming Media page or try a targeted search using the Library Catalog tab - search with titles, subjects or names of directors and actors, then use the Resource Type search limiter to restrict your results to DVD/Media.
Here is a DVD/Media-only search bar for your convenience!
The library must approve new selections from the Kanopy database in advance. Faculty members may request Kanopy titles for classroom use by email firstname.lastname@example.org or Davin.Pate@utdallas.edu. Students should contact their faculty member for access to streaming media or checkout DVDs from the Main Services Desk or Library Multimedia Services.
Currently, the library will subscribe to streaming films only for online courses if the film is available at a reasonable cost.
To show a film in class, faculty members teaching in-person or hybrid classes should borrow a physical DVD copy through the library and contact University Media Services who will provide the equipment on a scheduled day. If there is not a physical copy of the film, the library will attempt to purchase if time and funding permits. If faculty require the student to watch the film outside of class, the physical copy of the film should be put on Media Course Reserve.
While the McDermott library will make reasonable efforts to acquire materials required for coursework, the library may not honor all requests due to budgetary reasons.
