Kanopy Streaming Trial

Kanopy Streaming logo


The Millard Sheets Library has arranged a trial of a new database:


Kanopy Streaming currently offers over 26,000 films from over 800 leading producers such as Criterion Collection, New Day Films, The Great Courses, PBS, California Newsreel, Kino Lorber, First Run Features, and launches over 500 new release films every month.

You can access the database both on and off campus. We have access to this streaming video service until October 9, 2015.

Kanopy offers a patron driven demand model – the Library will only license those films that are viewed at least four times for more than 30 seconds each view within a twelve month period. This will allow faculty and students to browse the collection for classroom and research purposes without actually triggering a purchase. Once a film has been “viewed” four times, the Library will be charged a streaming license fee and the film can then be played unlimited times in a one year period without incurring additional cost.

After using the database, please take a moment to fill out this survey. Your response will help us evaluate our resources to better serve the Otis community.
