  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Inter-Library Loan

Bodleian Library, Oxford 1675

Otis does not have an official Inter-Library Loan Program. However, we are happy to assist students and faculty in finding the resources that they need. In many cases, it's more cost effective to buy material than participate in inter-library loan programs.

There are many other Los Angeles-area libraries available that the Otis Community may find useful.

The Getty Research Library is often willing to send us copies of a limited number of articles from their journals. Please contact Sue Maberry with requests. Otis Faculty are also eligible for a Stack Reader Card.

We are now offering all Otis Graduate Students check-out privileges to the Loyola Marymount Hannon Library.

As part of our SCELC membership, Otis Faculty may now use other SCELC libraries. You will need an Otis photo ID and a form filled out by the Director of the Library at Otis. If interested, please contact Sue Maberry.

Students and faculty are encouraged to request books and other materials that they find lacking in the collection. The reality is that is it often cheaper and faster to buy the needed material than to order it through inter-library loan.
