Kanopy's film collection covers all subject disciplines and includes documentaries, feature films, foreign language film, independent film, instructional film and more. Over 200+ new films are added every month.
The Library's access to Kanopy is via a Patron Driven Acquisition Programme. A set amount of money has been paid to the supplier of Kanopy for this financial year. If a film is viewed 4+ times this film is licensed/triggered and the budget is deducted accordingly.
Note: Lecturers should ensure any films/documentaries required for course material are viewed 4+ times to ensure the film is triggered. The usage of Kanopy will be monitored regularly.
Kanopy's Help Center is a very useful resource area. Viewers can add films to watchlists, create film clips and playlists highlighting particular sections or lists of films.
- All films must be watched online, there is no download feature
- Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers should be used in preference to Internet Explorer
Access to Kanopy is available from the Library Catalogue.
