Access Online Subscription Databases

Riverdale subscribes to several online databases to serve the information needs of our school community. The River and Hill librarians work with the academic technology integrators and teachers to identify databases that provide direct support of Riverdale's curriculum. Patrons can access information from scholarly journals, newspaper and magazine articles, and video and image content through these subscription databases. On-campus access to these databases requires no login. Off-campus access to these databases requires users to authenticate using Google.

Create Film Requests

You can request films to view in your classes and assign to students for homework. You can browse our film catalogs by following the directions in the Access Swank and Kanopy article. If you can't find the film you're looking for, submit a Film Request Form to add this to our Swank and or Kanopy catalogs. Please remember, streaming films in class from Netflix, Amazon, or other streaming services you subscribe to is likely a copyright violation.
