Video Reserves

Film Reserve logo

Faculty can place any title in the video collection on reserve. On reserve means the video is available for viewing in the Video Library and it does not circulate. Only the person who placed the video on reserve is allowed to remove this title from Video Library premises. If another individual is sent to pick up the video, the name has to be sent by e-mail to mclaugh@princeton.edu or called in to the circulation desk at 609-258-1290.

Reserves should be placed through Firestone Library's Online Reserve Request Service (ORRS). Items placed on reserve that are not currently owned by the University will be purchased if necessary.

Other items, including personal video materials for instruction, may be placed on temporary reserve in the Video Library and items may be submitted at the front desk.

Video on Demand

Video On Demand Logo

Video materials placed on reserve are generally made available to students of the course via Video-On-Demand as well as physical reserve in the Video Library. Students registered in these classes may view assigned video materials at any time during the semester through the Blackboard course page while on campus.

Assigned audio and video materials can be accessed through your Blackboard course page and are made available only to the participants of the course and for the duration of the course. Streaming video is also restricted to computers on the campus network and is not available via VPN. Videos may stream properly over wireless but good performance cannot be guaranteed. For best performance, please connect to the campus network with an Ethernet cable or use a campus cluster computer. Note that Firefox is the preferred browser. Please report any problems to mclaugh@princeton.edu (include location of PC).
