Our video collections include feature films, documentaries, training videos and much more. We do try to acquire works in streaming formats, our main platforms are kanopy, Films on Demand, Alexander Street , Docuseek2. All of these can be watched on or off campus by John Jay community students, faculty, and staff.
Some titles are only available to us on DVD, or VHS. Pease see below for details.
Please send feedback, comments, questions to libvideo at jjay dot cuny dot edu
As DVDs and VHD are intended primarily for classroom use at John Jay College, our loan periods are more restrictive than those of our regular book collection. John Jay Faculty may borrow for a 3-day loan period and can request an extension prior to the due date at firstname.lastname@example.org. All other CUNY faculty and all CUNY (including John Jay) students get a 3-hour loan period and must watch the videos in the Library. Non-CUNY patrons need to arrange a guest pass into the Library and then arrangements can be made for them to view a video on premises.
DVD's can be viewed on any Library computer, use your own headphones or borrow ours. We have a VHS player in our media viewing room - please ask the staff at the circulation desk for directions.
