Swank Streaming Video TRIAL

Penn Libraries are participating in a PALCI sponsored trial of the Swank campus streaming video platform. The result is that you will find records for 300+ films listed in Franklin with links to the Swank streaming platform. The trial lasts three months and our access will disappear at the end of that three months.

In the Franklin catalog, you can search the term Swank and filter or limit the results by video or paste in this URL:


In a Franklin Swank record you’ll see information that may assist you in viewing the streamed video–under System requirements:

Also in Notes:

Note prohibiting “public performance”–that is no open invitations, no charging admission, no posters announcing events, etc.

While the trial lasts, “connect to full text” and enjoy the access!
