Streaming Video Services: Kanopy

Mediated Access to Kanopy

Effective July 6, 2020, Santa Clara University has moved to a mediated access model for Kanopy. Only films required for courses or doctoral dissertations will be approved for licensing. Existing films that are licensed on Kanopy will remain available on the platform until they expire.

Find and View Films on Kanopy

Faculty, students, and staff will be able to view currently licensed films on the Kanopy platform. If a film is not yet licensed, a request form will pop up. Only requests from faculty for course materials and from graduate students for dissertations will be considered. Faculty should provide information about the course for which the film is needed, how long the film is needed (1 or 3 years), and by when. The library will do its best to respond to requests within 3 business days.
