Change on May 29, 2020

In response to budget concerns, WSU Libraries will transition from the Kanopy on-demand streaming film service to a request-based format. While the pay-per-view Kanopy program has been well used, it has become increasingly difficult to financially sustain.

At this time,  can request a Kanopy film by filling out a purchase request form for any title they plan to use in class or for educational purposes. The WSU Libraries will then work to make sure the film is licensed in time for the assignment and/or that a currently licensed title is not about to expire.
