Streaming Media

Streaming Video

We are working with two of the biggest streaming video vendors which together offer close to 60,000 films from the latest blockbusters to highly specialized documentaries.

We are extremely excited about this program, as faculty members can embed video links, clips, and playlists directly into Blackboard, making course assignments convenient and accessible for all.

In order to ensure your film is available at the start of the Fall 2020 semester, please navigate to the site and register as an instructor. From there, search and request any film(s) of interest. In your request, be sure to detail the intended use of the film, including the course name and anticipated enrollment. 

Kanopy (

Kanopy works slightly differently--the entire 30,000-title collection is available for immediate viewing. Once a title has been viewed 4 times, the Library automatically licenses it for one year.

We have allocated funds to license a limited number of titles this year, so feel free to search for and assign titles. In order to ensure students have access to a film, please let us know what film(s) you are assigning for Fall 2020.
