Hofstra University Library licenses streaming video titles to support the curriculum of the University. The Library does not license film titles for individual use. An educational license for a film can cost anywhere from $135 to $1000. The Library budget prioritizes film licensing for titles that will be assigned and used by multiple viewers for a particular course.
