Kanopy Update - July 30, 2020

Access to Kanopy is currently restricted due to lack of funds. Faculty can still 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.
In order to help us process your request, you can add the course the streaming video is for, and the duration you plan to use it (one semester, several years, etc.) in the notes field, so that we can explore licensing options. We will work with you to get the license that best fits your needs. Still, it is good to check each year to make sure that the film is still currently under license.
Please note: Kanopy films specifically are licensed for one year. If faculty members will use a film beyond this time period, they must make a new media request for the title prior to the semester they plan to use the film in order to ensure that it is licensed again. Please give Libraries’ staff ample lead-time to fulfill requests for streaming media.
