Education Through Film With SWANK Digital Campus

Swank digital campus

Reynolds library is pleased to announce campus-wide access to SWANK Digital Campus.  SWANK provides digital access to though-provoking films allowing educators to enhance the learning experience without taking up valuable class time.  Currently, Reynolds licenses nearly 30 feature films.

There are two things to keep in mind regarding viewing the films.  First, SWANK works only on Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.  (It does not work with Chrome or Safari.)  Second, you’ll need to download a small software: Microsoft Silverlight in order to watch the films online. To access SWANK off campus, simply enter your MyReynolds username and password.  If you have any additional technology issues while using SWANK, please email or call Mary Hanlin, the Electronic and Web Resources Librarian, at mhanlin@reynolds or 804.523.5323.
