Kanopy Video Streaming - Important Changes

In recent years, we have offered Kanopy on-demand for streamed video content; however, as the resource has gained in popularity, the costs have risen to a level that we can no longer sustain. To ensure that Kanopy is available to support curricular needs, we are moving from “on demand” access of films to mediated access of films in Kanopy. You will still have immediate, on-demand access to stream any of the films we've already purchased. If we do not already have a license for the video that you want, you can search for and request it through a form. The film will then be leased for 12 months. Requested films will typically be available within 48 hours. 

Priority is given to faculty who are requesting films for use in a course. Students who need a particular film for a course should ask their instructors to make the request on their behalf.
