NEW! Access to Thousands of Streaming Videos Via Kanopy

The Claire T. Carney Library has been exploring new ways to provide material for faculty and students in the most cost effective and efficient way possible. As part of this effort, we recently acquired access to Kanopy, a vendor that provides thousands of streaming films relevant to higher education curricula.Because VHS is becoming difficult to support and many of our current tapes are losing integrity, this is a great option for your teaching. Titles are searchable through Primo, our discovery system, and through the Kanopy database…see links below. Review the resource titles to see whether there is a streaming option for your instruction.  You may even discover new titles that can easily be linked to in MyCourses in their entirety or as clips you create.

In addition, if you have questions about the availability of particular items your library liaison can help you investigate options.
