Requesting streaming media

There are some general restrictions on streaming media that we're able to acquire for our library collection:

  • We don't have access to content that you might find on personal platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Vimeo, etc.
  • We are unable to purchase streaming content from many small, independent film companies.
  • Most streaming media that we purchase is offered as a short-term lease, rather than a purchase.
  • If the content you're interested in isn't available on one of the platforms we do support, please see this link for alternatives. 
  • If you aren't sure if the streaming media you're interested in is available for us to purchase, feel free to email us at
