Kanopy, the on-demand video streaming service, is now available to the SLU community.  Kanopy offers access to documentaries, foreign and classic films, and educational videos.  You can access this service from the library’s Films and Videos page or our list of Databases

The library has started its Kanopy subscription with over a thousand films, including PBS documentaries and classic films from the Criterion Collection.  We can expand our holdings upon request; priority will be given to films that are required to support a course.

Everything that Kanopy has to offer is searchable, but some films may not be immediately available.  When searching Kanopy you may find titles at the bottom of the search results in the request section.  If you click on one of these titles, you will be provided with a form that you can use to request access.  Please include a course number and title if applicable.  Acquisitions staff will review your request and you’ll be notified when the film has been made available.

Faculty who would like to link to a film from Sakai or create clips may do so… contact us for help!
