2F. Streaming Videos

Section 2: Additional Resources

The Library subscribes to a number of educational streaming on demand services. In order to use for online learning, proxy login will be required.

Note that due to costs and bandwidth requirements, these services are limited. They also have requirements for display. 

Kanopy is a video streaming platform that offers a broad selection of documentaries, feature films, and educational videos that can be viewed from anywhere, anytime. Collections include: Criterion Collection, PBS, HBO, New Day Films, The Great Courses, California Newsreel, Kino Lorber, Media Education Foundation, and many more. 
The Library will be changing video activation for the Kanopy streaming video platform this spring. Currently, Kanopy video leases are automatically “triggered” after 30 seconds of viewing, which means that costs are incurred on per-use basis. After a pilot year of monitoring, adjusting access, and negotiating alternatives for frequently triggered content (such the Criterion Collection), this model continues to be unsustainable. After the current Kanopy fund pool is expired (or April 1st - whichever comes first) Instructors and Professors will need to request Kanopy video licenses through their subject librarian.

Criterion on Demand is a feature film platform that provides access to educationally relevant feature films from a wide variety of major producers, such as 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks SKG, Sony Pictures Classics, Alliance Films, Miramax Films etc... The titles include 1920 classics, new releases, foreign films, literary adaptations, documentaries, animated titles, and independent features. Films are in English and French, and have subtitled/captioned versions when available.

Important Details:

Video titles from Twentieth Century-Fox Collection (20th Century Fox) are limited to on-campus use only.

Criterion-on-Demand will not work on a mobile device.

You are permitted to download or stream Licensed Materials solely for personal, non-commercial and educational or research viewing. You are not permitted to stream a film for entertainment uses (such as university events open to the public or a student club holding a movie night, an entertainment license is needed for this).
