Our online chat service is available 24/7 and is designed to support the CSI community needing assistance with research and other curricular issues. If a CUNY librarian is not available, an academic librarian from one of our partner libraries will assist you.
This Database contains more than 66,000 streaming video titles spanning the widest range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.

This collection of streaming videos connects academic audiences with leading documentary films from across the world. It includes a wide variety of meaningful documentaries of social, political and cultural importance, in many subjects. Film highlights include RBG, Dolores, and films in many languages. All films are accessible immediately, without special request. These films now are on a new Alexander Street platform!
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.
