Online Movies (VFNow / OCRA)

Full length feature movies can be made available online for students and faculty in a given class through an E-reserves online playlist. Faculty may request that Library, Departmental or personal copies of movies be digitized. Online playback is password-protected and limited to each class for the duration of one semester.  The movies can be accessed in Canvas or directly at the access link above.

Request this Service: 

Fill out the OCRA request form (after you login click on "Add Entire Movies"). If the movies are owned by the Brown libraries, you will not need to take any action after you make your initial request. OCRA will keep you abreast of any progress in your request. Please note that it takes at least 10 days from the time we receive your movie for it to be digitized and made available online. To add the E-Reserves link to your Canvas course site, follow these instructions.
