Does the Library provide a Netflix / Hulu / iTunes / Amazon Prime subscription for users?


Answer

Unfortunately, these consumer-based services do not have a mechanism for institutional subscriptions, so the Library is unable to provide access to them. The Library does, however, license eVideos (including feature films and documentaries) via multiple alternate services. You can find these resources by searching DELCAT Discovery, as you would a DVD or a book, and clicking the 'View Now' button. (If you are off campus, you will need to log in with your UD netid and password.) Alternately, you may explore the databases individually at:  https://guides.lib.udel.edu/media

If a film is available for purchase on DVD, you may place a request that it be added to the Collection.

Tip:  Netflix does allow educational exceptions to their end-user licensing agreement for a small selection of documentaries they've produced.  If you run the following search in Google, you will generate a list of titles a Netflix subscriber would be eligible to show in an educational setting:  site:https://media.netflix.com/en/only-on-netflix "educational screening"
