The Kanopy Streaming Video Collection offers what the New York Times calls “a garden of cinematic delights.” Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 titles, including award-winning documentaries and acclaimed films, rare and hard-to-find titles, and classic films, with collections from The Great Courses, Kino Lorber, and PBS among many others. Videos from the Great Courses are now available to stream for free without counting towards the monthly cap of ten check outs – learn more here.
Users can access Kanopy through a variety of devices and platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, iOS and Android. Kanopy is also compatible for hearing- (with captions and transcripts) and visually-impaired patrons (compatible with technologies such as JAWS). Wi-Fi access is necessary to view movies, which are available to stream but not to download. Films that are checked out are available to view for three days with a maximum of 10 checkouts a month. Visit the Kanopy help page for more information.
