Streaming Video

Using Kanopy

Kanopy includes videos with perpetual (purchased and owned) and subscription (rental) licensing.

  • Videos with a perpetual license can be found using the Library Search on the Libraries' homepage. Search for any topic and limit the search by "format, video" to find results. 
  • Subscription titles must be searched within the Kanopy Platform.
  • All videos (whether perpetual or subscription) can be found and viewed on Kanopy.

*Some titles in Kanopy are mediated and require that instructor's 'request' access. Instructors will be notified within one business day of the status of their request.
