Howard-Tilton Memorial Library has large collections of music and audio-visual recordings at the library's 6th floor Service Desk. The library has also begun to lease films for educational use in streaming media format and these have been licensed for classroom use and use as course materials.
Locating films in streaming media format: You can locate many films in streaming media format with licensed access via the Tulane campus network using the Audio | Visual feature of the Library Search box on the library home page, and then refining results to Full-text Online and Visual recordings. Not all streaming titles available through the library are discoverable in this way. Find additional films by exploring the streaming media databases listed on the Streaming Resources at Tulane guide.

The following tutorial shows easy examples of how to link directly to films on both the the Kanopy and Swank streaming platforms.
