Streaming Video

We are working with three of the biggest streaming video vendors which together offer over 100,000 films from the latest blockbusters to highly specialized documentaries. We also subscribe to a streaming database for classical and jazz music that includes around 7,000 concerts, performances, and master classes. 

Faculty members can embed video links, clips, and playlists directly into Blackboard, making course assignments convenient and accessible for all. 


We are licensing films from Swank for curricular use on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In order to ensure your film is available at the start of the each semester, please navigate to the site and register as an instructor. From there, search and request any film(s) of interest one month before the start of the semester. In your request, be sure to detail the intended use of the film, including the course name. 


Faculty can either request a film through Kanopy or send an email to your faculty librarian liaison. In addition to single purchases the library has access to Kanopy's BASE collection including over 10,000 videos featuring a wide array of titles covering multiple courses of study. 

In order to ensure students have access to a film, please let us know what film(s) you are assigning for the semester.
