Kanopy Streaming Video

Kanopy provides streaming access to films licensed by year and as our budget allows. Once added to our collection, titles can be used in any course that semester. Captioning is available in all videos and can be turned on and off as needed within the film. Films may be shown in class or assigned to enrolled students to view outside of class. The films do not have public performance rights.

Faculty members please contact your subject specialist if you need a title for your class.
