Milner Library subscribes to a number of streaming video websites that are accessible Illinois State University faculty, staff and students.  There are multiple ways to access streaming videos.

Course Reserves: 

To find a particular streaming video for class:

  • Search for your class in Course Reserves to see if your video is listed under your class's reserves. 
  • If the video is listed for your class, click the title of the video.  On the video information page, click the link to online access for your streaming video.
  • If the video does not appear in the Course Reserves search, it may be on Electronic Reserves on ReggieNet. Log into ReggieNet and check for the video in Electronic Course Reserves for your class by navigating to your course, clicking its Resources folder, clicking the Electronic Course Reserves folder, and clicking the title of the video to access it.
  • If the video is not listed in either course reserves location, search for the title of the video in the Milner Catalog.
