Amanda Matava: Course Reserves & Digitization Requests

About me, where to find me, and what times I can meet

Find & Embed Videos for Courses

Visit the Library Catalog and click on "Databases" under the search bar. Select "Film and Media Studies" under subjects. 

Here is a quick list of where you will find videos, which you can then embed or link to Moodle: 

Items in Kaltura will automatically be embedded into your Moodle course. Find them on the left-hand side of the course page, under "Kaltura Media Gallery." 

Please utilize this blog post for assistance in embedding a film from one of our databases directly into your Moodle courses. Embedding the film will create a visible player for students to watch right in Moodle. You can also simply copy and paste the URL to the video into your course, which will lead students to the database with the film.  

Course Reserves and Streaming Video Requests

Please submit requests using the LITC Ticketing System (also called Course Reserves Request Form). There is no need to also fill out a purchase request -- the purchase will be fulfilled if we do not own the item! The course reserves form is a one-stop shop. 

Log into the system and begin your ticket with Library --> Course Reserves & Streaming Video. This will change the form to include many more options. 

Fill out the form with your desired items. The form will create a ticket that can be tracked by LITC staff. Once the form/ticket is submitted, staff will be able to start processing your requests, and you will be notified throughout the process and when the films are complete. If the films are available via one of our databases, you will receive a link to embed them to Moodle. If the film is digitized in Kaltura, we will link the film to your course for you. 

You are also able to browse your ticket history, so submitting requests through the form will keep a record of the films you request! 

Please use this link to reach general Course Reserves information & guidelines The left tab that says "Reserve Request Form" will also bring you to the ticketing system. 

Digitization Requests

Just like course reserves, you will access the LITC Ticketing System to request digitization of library or archival materials for addition to the library's digital repository, teaching, presentation, research, or publication. 

Examples of items we have digitized include maps from periodicals, postcards and photographs from the Watkinson Library, Trinitiana (material from the college archives such as Trinity Yearbooks, Catalogs, Bulletins, Newspapers, Magazines, and more), images from books, and much more. Please visit ArtStor as well as the Digital Repository to get a sense of what we currently have ready to use in our digital collections.
