Kanopy offers over 26,000 multimedia titles, including films and documentaries from PBS, Kino Lorber, and Criterion Collection. All streaming rights have been cleared for academic use. Videos may be streamed in the classroom and anywhere on campus, or viewed off-campus using a library barcode. Kanopy offers a sign-in option for users to create clips and playlists, a great way to curate and share content from this collection.
