Update October 20, 2021

Powell Library has opened Fall 2021 quarter, and we are able to circulate physical media and films to instructors, faculty and researchers now that in-person teaching has resumed. Please follow all Covid-19-related guidelines when visiting the library.

We are still currently digitizing and making available to stream most titles in our collection for online viewing by your students via your registered course websites. Most of our titles can be streamed  depending on legal restrictions, and we can also acquire and receive new titles through our mini-grant program.

You can search our collection here: CATALOG. Please contact imlib@teaching.ucla.edu for more information and guidance.

As a convenience you may also be able to access needed films for free online through other options, including:

  • Kanopy – a campus service free to UCLA students and faculty via UCLA VPN
  • The Los Angeles Public Library also has Kanopy. Theirs is a slightly different curated collection with different films, and is free with a LAPL library card

Please feel free to contact imlib@teaching.ucla.edu for more information and guidance.

The Instructional Media Collections and Services (IMCS) is the central resource for the collection and maintenance of instructional media.

The Instructional Media Collections and Services (IMCS) primarily serves faculty and departmental personnel who use media in the classroom. The IMCS houses and maintains several department and study center collections and features an ever growing collection of DVDs, videotapes, laserdiscs and films.
