Following a series of service enhancements at the BFI (British Film Institute), on-campus access to the streaming audio-visual content of the Screenonline collection has now been restored. Changes in the authentication management procedures required by the BFI mean that the previous licensing complications which interrupted NTU’s access to the multimedia content last year have now been resolved.
On-campus visitors to the Screenonline database, will enjoy automatic access to that multimedia content via Windows Media Player (on both PC and Mac).
Due to continuing licensing constraints, there are no plans to extend multimedia access to off-campus visitors.
The listings for Screenonline in LLR’s resource discovery environment have been updated accordingly.
