If you'd rather not brave the desert heat to go see the latest blockbuster, stay indoors, fire up your computer or laptop, and visit the new Swank Digital Campus database of streaming films hand picked for the UNLV community (off campus, you can log in with your ACE account).

The new database features such recent award winning films and documentaries as The Imitation Game, Nebraska, and Citizenfour, as well as classics like To Kill a Mockingbird, West Side Story, and The Godfather. Films featuring Las Vegas are also included: The Hangover, Casino, and The Cooler, among others.

Streaming feature films aren't just for UNLV classes any more. There is a lot there to satisfy all kinds of interests and tastes.

Swank Digital Campus is the latest addition to the UNLV Libraries' growing collection of streaming videos for academic and leisure viewing. For more information, see the Libraries' Online Movies & Streaming Video guide.

And don't forget that we also have a large number of titles on DVD, available for check-out by UNLV students, faculty and staff.
