New Service: Streaming Films @ Trent Library

New Service: Streaming Films & Trent Library

Posted January 12, 2012

The Trent Library has arranged to have a small number of our purchased films licensed, digitized, and hosted for streaming over the internet. A company called McNabb Connolly is providing this service. Titles were selected based on circulation activity, demand for materials moving between Peterborough and Oshawa, and availability of streaming rights.

Streaming videos/films provide enormous flexibility over DVD and VHS formats. Intended to be viewed from personal computers and tablets, streaming films can be watched at any time from any location. Showings need not be limited to class periods.

You can access these streaming films on the McNabb Connolly website.

Links can also be found on our website:

The titles currently available (listed alphabetically) are:

GOD SLEEPS IN RWANDA
IF ONLY I WERE AN INDIAN
KEEPERS OF THE FIRE
LIFE AND DEBT

Note that admission fees may NOT be charged for screening of these streaming resources.
