The collection consists of streaming films, which can be watched on or off campus, that cover a full range of disciplines including documentaries, tutorials, and TV shows on academic topics. A number of classic and popular films from the Criterion Collection are also included. If you are a faculty member and you cannot find the film you need for your course, please fill out our Request Form. The library will need notice so that we can purchase the film licence from Kanopy or order a DVD, depending on your classroom needs.
